To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On August 28th, I received a com- 
munication from the Commissioner of Compen- 
sation requesting the veto of an ordinance passed at 
your last regular meeting of July 22, 1925, C. P. P. 
1221-2 granting authority to the Riverside Plaza 
Corporation to construct a tunnel under the upper 
level of Wabash avenue for the reason that said 
ordinance contains no provision for the filing of an 
indemnity bond or for the payment of compen- 
sation. 

Inasmuch as this ordinance has been signed by 
me, I submit herewith in lieu of a veto, an ordi- 
nance amending said ordinance which meets the re- 
quirements of the Department of Compensation. 

Will you please refer the same to your Com- 
mittee on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys for 
its consideration and report. 



Yours very truly.

Report of Releases from the House of Correction. 

The Mayor submitted a report of persons released by 
him from the House of Correction during the period 
ended October 28, 1925, which was ordered 

Placed on file. 



Review of Activities of the Mayor and the Executive 
Departments. 

The Mayor submitted the following special message, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, October 28, 1925.] 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In accordance with law, and con- 
forming to a custom established by this adminis- 
tration to address your Honorable Body upon the 
activities and accomplishments of the executive 
division of our local governmental forces at the 
first fall meeting in each year, I submit herewith a 
report of the affairs of our municipality for the past 
twelve months. 

THE LOCiL TRANSPORTATION PROBLEM. 

Since my last annual report, the Committee on 
Local Transportation working in complete harmony 
with the administrative officials of the City pre- 
sented to your Honorable Body a plan for a settle- 
ment of our many sided and complex traction prob- 
lem. The plan commended itself to your Honorable 
Body and was adopted by it by a vote of forty to five. 
That it was disapproved of at a popular referendum 
should not be permitted to obscure the fact that a 
tremendous amount of conscientious study and energy 
was given by all of us in an effort to obtain a so- 
lution of this vexed question. 

The Committee on Local Transportation has in- 
dicated its readiness to again take up the question 
for immediate consideration in a further effort to 
work out a satisfactory solution. The administrative 
officials of the City are most ready and anxious to 
co-operate with you in every way possible, to the end 
that a satisfactory solution of this question may be 
arrived at before the expiration of the Surface Lines 
franchises in February, 1927. 

. Almost immediately after the defeat of the trac- 
tion ordinance, a bill was introduced in the General 
Assembly (the Barr Bill), amending the State Utili- 
ties Act so as to permit of the issuance by that body 
to utilities companies of so-called terminable per- 
mits. Under this bill, as drawn, the City would have 
completely lost the power of regulating in the slight- 
est degree the service to be rendered our citizens by 
local public utilities. Likewise, the City would have 
lost the right to contract with the Street Railway 
Lines, the Elevated Roads, the Bus Companies, the 
Telephone Company and all other public utilities 



/

for compensation for franchise privileges or for the 
maintenance of City property occupied or damaged 
S operation by such utilities. The bill was m m> 
judgment, a thoroughly bad piece o Jegi^ f^on A 
determined fight was made upon this ^lU by the 
administration in the General Assembly and as a 
result of the combined efforts of administrative offi- 
cials, your special committee on the subject and your 
standing Committee on Local Transportation, the 
bill was withdraxvn. A joint commission was ap- 
poi^nted by the last General Assembly however, to 
stuS the matter of terminable Permits and repor 
at the next session of the Assembly In the fight 
that was made by Chicago against this lej^s atiori 
we were given invaluable assistance by the Illinois 
SunTcipal League, representing other cities, towns 
and villages in the State. 

In my judgment, it is imperative that your Hon- 
orable Body and the administrative officials of the 
Sty co-operate with the greatest harmony and 
effectiveness to the end that if legislation of this 
'enetal character is presented to the next General 
Assembl^, such legislation will properly safeguard 
the rights of communities which these utilities 
will be called upon to serve. 

RIVER STRAIGHTENING AND RAILWAY TERMINALS 

Much effort has been expended during the last 
year to bring about the straightening of the South 
Branch of the Chicago River between Polk and 
Eighteenth streets, so as to permit the opening of 
at lea't three additional north and south thorough- 
fares to the south and southwest sides. 

The present location of the channel not only 
creates an intolerable condition of traffic con- 
gestion, but indefinitely retards the development 
of this section. 

In my 1924 report I referred to the organization 
perfected, at the administration's request, by the 
interested railroads, to co-operate with us m the 
solution of this problem. That co-operation has 
continued. Inasmuch, however, as the principal 
obstacle to progress has been the conflicting owner- 
ships of the various roads and the individual prob- 
lem of loss and benefit which will follow the 
abandonment of the old, and the building of the 
new channel, the Commissioner of Public Workb, 
with the full co-operation of your Committee on 
Railway Terminals, enlisted the services of a group 
of distinguished Chicagoans, and these men have 
untiringly and unselfishly devoted themselves m an 
effort to adjust these conflicting railroad interests. 

I cannot speak too highly in praise of the work 
accomplished by these public-spirited citizens. The 
interested railroads are at present earnestly con- 
sidering their recommendations, and if the adjust- 
,„ent^ sugnestpu nv thn, .-ommittee arp accepted, 
there is no reason why the actual work of river 
straightening should not proceed immediately. 

While the straightening of the river and the 
opening of these new streets are in themselves im- 
provements of first importance, they are but in- 
cidents to the development of this vast section 
which will follow the inevitable consolidation of 
the existing passenger and freight terminals of 
these roads. 

La Salle Street Bridge: 

Work on the LaSalle street bridge has been 
pushed, and bids will be taken in^the course of 
the next two or three weeks for both the north 
and south substructure and abutments This struc- 
ture will result in the opening of Labaiie street 



and materially relieve traffic congestion on Michi- 
gan boulevard and other north and south streets 
crossing the river. 

Lake Calumet Harbor: 

Stakes have been set out in Lake Calumet and 
around its margin showing where the lake shall 
be dredged and where the spoil shall be placed to 
make the road and the railroad right of way. The 
dredging work has been held up pending action by 
the State on the application already made by the 
City for approval of the contract ordinance re- 
cently passed by your Honorable Body. 

Track Elevation: 

Really gratifying progress has been made in track 
elevation. A complete statement of this vital work 
is incorporated in the accomplishments of the De- 
partment of Public Works. 

"Santa Fe" Ordinance: 

So far as is possible at this time the terms of 
this ordinance have been complied with by the 
Santa Fe Railway Company. The City has taken 
up with the receivers for the Chicago and Alton 
Railroad Company the question of the necessity of 
opening of subways under its right of way, which 
openings, together with the bridges to be erected 
by the Sanitary District and the subways under the 
Santa Fe, make a final and definite end of the 
Chinese wall which has heretofore existed and 
thwarted development in that part of the City. 

Meterization of Water: 

Following the passage of the universal metering 
ordinance studies have . been made both of the 
method to be followed in the installation of meters 
which would give the most immediate and greatest 
relief to those portions of the City having a very 
inadequate water pressure, and as to the adoption 
of a type of meter which will admit of open com- 
petitive bidding and which will preclude the pos- 
sibility of the City's ever being in a position where 
meter manufacturers could hold it up by raising 
the price of spare parts. Progress on both of these 
studies is well advanced. 

SOUTH WATER STREET (WAGKER DRIVE) IMPROVEMENT 

In the reconstruction of South Water street 
(Wacker drive) there has been really remarkable 
progress when the magnitude of this work and 
the obstacles encountered are considered. The first 
step toward actual construction (the wrecking of 
that portion of the street between West Lake street 
and North Wells street) began October 1, 1924. 

At that time, except in a few scattered instances, 
the merchants on the street had made no arrange- 
ments for mioving to new locations. The rapid 
progress in the reconstruction rendered imperative 
the immediate removal and relocation of the vast 
South Water street industry. Through the co- 
operation of the business interests involved, aided 
by the administrative officials of the City and the 
City Council, a new location was secured at Four- 
teenth place. Fifteenth and Morgan streets, and in 
an incredibly short time (eight months), a new 
market was built still to be known as the South 
Water Street Market, which is unquestionably the 
largest, most completely equipped and best served 
produce market to be found anywhere in the United 
States. 

A detailed statement of the progress of the new 
Wacker drive constructed since October 1, 1924, 
is contained in the statement of the work of the

later in this report. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS. 

Chicago Union Station: 

The work imposed on the Union Station Com- 
pany under their ordinance of March 23, 1914, has 
been practically completed. 

The installation of concrete track slabs, new 
track, station platforms, signals, and interlocking 
apparatus is 98% flnished. The train sheds, con- 
course and main station have been so nearly com- 
pleted that they were opened to the public and 
the old station building torn down. Roosevelt road 
viaduct was flnished and opened to the public; 
Adams street viaduct is under construction and 
Canal street widening from Monroe to Adams street 
is well under way. Canal street from Jackson 
boulevard south has been entirely completed and 
opened to traffic. The intersection of Jackson 
boulevard and Clinton street which was the sore 
spot in these two streets and the subject of com- 
plaint for over twenty years has been readjusted 
and repaved without cost to the City. 

Lake Front Improvement: 

Very good progress has been made by the South 
Park Commissioners and by the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company both of whom are operating, 
under the supervision of the Commissioner of 
Public Works, by virtue of the ordinance passed 
July 21, 1919. 

The development of the lake front park south 
of Randolnh street has been continued, the via- 
ducts at Thirty-first street and at Oakwood boule- 
vard are under construction while the first section 
of the outer drive with its connecting link. Twen- 
ty-third street viaduct, has been opened to the 
public. 

The electrification work on the suburban lines 
of the railroad is well ahead of the ordinance re- 
quirements. The regrading of the right of way is 
practically completed. New subways are under 
construction at Indiana avenue and One Hundred 
and Thirtieth street. Van Buren street subway 
under Michigan avenue is completed and the re- 
moval of all suburban passengers from Michigan 
avenue at this point has eliminated this former 
flangprous grade crossing. Track rearrangements 
and the necessary changes in suburban stations or 
platforms are being made. In this connection, this 
office has in many cases suggested changes in the 
plans of the railroad company and induced them 
to make improvements compatible with the sur- 
rounding territory, and obtained, without cost to 
the City, dedications of property which will tend 
to correct bad street traffic conditions. 

Railroad Subways — Street Widenings: 

The subways on Ogden avenue under the Chi- 
cago Northwestern Railway at Kinzie street and at 
Carpenter street have been completed. 

The subway on Ashland avenue at Cortland 
strof't undf'r the Chicago Northwestern Railway is 
about 65% complete. 
Truck Elevation: 

As the result of harmonious co-operation by the 
Track Elevation Committee and the Department of 
Public Works, railroad track elevation, retarded 
during several years past, was resumed this year 
upon a large scale. 

Under an ordinance passed March 11, 1925, the 



Illinois Central Railroad Company has completed a 
bridge in One Hundred and Thirtieth street at 
Indiana avenue and will complete another in 
Indiana avenue about 700 feet south of One Hun- 
dred and Thirtieth street within three weeks. The 
pavement, curbs and sidewalks in the subway 
under both of these bridges will be completed this 
season. 

This year the Illinois Central Railroad Company 
and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Com- 
pany have completed a subway in South California 
avenue between the Illinois and Michigan Canal 
and the Sanitary District Canal. This subway was 
completed pursuant to ordinance passed January 
19, 1916. 

The passage, on July 15, 1924, of the amendatory 
ordinance which modified the terms of the ordi- 
nance of April 5, 1911, so as to provide practicable 
operating conditions for the Nickel Plate Railway 
Company at and near Ninety-fifth street and Stony 
Island avenue has resulted in very satisfactory 
activity by the railroads concerned. 

The Chicago & Western Indiana Company has 
elevated its tracks from a point east of South 
Park avenue to a point west of Stony Island ,ave- 
nue and is constructing subways at St. Lawrence 
avenue and Ninety-third street, and Cottage Grove 
avenue and Ninety-first street. 

The Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Company, 
which could not elevate until the Chicago & 
Western Indina work had progressed to its present 
stage, is about to begin work between the points 
stated. This road is now at work at Ninety-fourth 
street and Stony Island avenue in conjunction with 
the Western Indiana, the Belt Railway, the Nickel 
Plate Company, and the Pullman Railroad, all of 
which railroads are diligently proceeding with 
work preliminary to the construction of subways 
in Stony Island avenue between Ninety-fourth and 
Ninety-fifth streets, in Ninety-fifth street west of 
Stony Island avenue, and in Stony Island avenue 
south of Ninety-fifth street. 

The Illinois Central Company is co-operating in 
this "work at the crossing located at Ninety-fourth 
street east of Cottage Grove avenue. This com- 
pany also completed its subway at Ninety-fifth 
street this year, and erected a temporary trestle 
west of the old birdge over the Ninety-third street 
subway preliminary to pushing work at that point 
next year. 

Under ordinance passed April 22, 1912, the Penn- 
sylvania Company (Pan Handle Railroad) and the 
Baltimore & Ohio Chicago Terminal Railroad Com- 
pany completed subways in Fifty-fifth street (Gar- 
field boulevard) and in Fifty-sixth street at 
Leavitt street this year. 

Elevation of the Leavitt street tracks between 
Fifty-fifth and Thirty-ninth streets has lagged 
because the interested railroads experienced dif- 
ficulty in arriving at an agreement concerning the 
separation of grades at Forty-ninth street, where 
the Grand Trunk Western, the Chicago River and 
Indiana, and the Indiana Harbor Belt tracks cross 
those of the Pan Handle and the Baltimore & Ohio 
Chicago Terminal. After many months of ne- 
gotiation, during which the Department of Public 
Works was insistent that the railroads reach an 
agreement upon a basis which will provide good 
traffic conditions in subways, a draft of an amend- 
ment to the original ordinance was prepared, ap- 
proved by the Commissioner of Public Works, and 
IS now penduig in the Track Elevation Commit-

tee If this proposed amendment is passed by the 
City Council work will proceed next season. 

One of the most important steps toward the 
elimination of grade crossings was the passage, 
on July 22nd of this year, of the ordmance pro- 
viding for the elevation of the tracks of the Grand 
Trunk Western, the Chicago River & Indiana, and 
the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroads in Forty-nmth 
street between Western and Central Park avenues, 
and of the Grand Trunk Western Railway Com- 
pany in Central Park avenue between Forty-nmth 
street and Sixty-seventh street. 

This ordinance provides for subways at several 
important streets, including that which appears 
from experience to be the most dangerous grade 
crossing in Chicago, namely, Kedzie avenue at 
Forty-ninth street where, according to the terms 
of the measure, the subway must be completed 
next year. The roads involved are now working 
upon plans pertaining to this elevation. 

The Chicago & Western Indiana Railroad Com- 
pany has announced its intention to begin work 
of elevation across Michigan avenue near One 
Hundred and Sixteenth street next year. 

There has been no progress upon the elevation 
of the Chicago & North Western Railway Company 
and the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway 
Company tracks at "Mayfair" because the latter 
. road went into receivers' hands soon after the vot- 
ers approved the ordinance providing for the issu- 
ance of City bonds in the sum of $1,500,000.00, the 
proceeds to be advanced to the Chicago, Milwaukee 
& St. Paul Railway Company to defray the cost ol 
this elevation. 

The receivers have stated their willingness, pro- 
vided the United States District Court will permit, 
to enter into an agreement similar to that con- 
templated with the company under ordinance 
passed January 30, 1925, Council Journal page 4657. 

Steps to complete such an agreement will be 
taken when a law suit* now pending to determine 
the right of the City to advance the money above 
referred to is adjudicated, and as the Chicago & 
North Western Company is prepared to proceed 
■ when the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway 
Company is able financially to co-operate, work 
will be resumed as soon as the agreement is con- 
sumimated. 

Bureau of Waste Disposal: 

The Municipal Reduction Plant received and dis- 
posed of 103,511 tons of raw garbage during the 
year ending September 30, 1925, as compared with 
114 395 tons for the preceding year, showing a de- 
crease of 10,884 tons. This decrease m the amount 
of garbage received at the City's reduction plant 
is apparently due to a lack of separation by the 
householder, much of the garbage being mixed with 
ashes and taken to the City's dumps. 

The production of garbage grease for the twelve 
months ending September 30th totaled 6,109,630 
pounds, as compared with a total of 6,384,890 
pounds for the previous twelve months. Previous 
to the year 1923, the highest production of gar- 
bage grease at the Municipal Reduction Plant dur- 
ing any year approximated 4,000,000 pounds. Dur- 
ing 1923, 1924 and the present year the plant has 



produced an average of more than 6,000,000 pounds 
of grease annually, showing an increase of fifty 
per cent in operating efficiency. This is the re- 
sult of the policy of the present administration to 
maintain the equipment of the reduction plant so 
that the maximum amount of by-products may be 
recovered from the garbage. 

The revenue from the sale of by-products 
vouchered from October 1, 1924, to September 30, 
1925 totaled $375,939.50, as compared with a total 
of $304,327.92 for the preceding year, showing an 
increase of $71,611.58. 

The net cost of operation of the reduction plant, 
including repairs and the disposal of rubbish, 
during the year ending September 30, 1925, with 
September estimated, was $326,944.75, as com- 
pared with $391,732.58 for the preceding year, 
showing a decrease of $64,787.83. This decrease 
has been accomplished by an increase in the amount 
of revenue due to increased production and in- 
creased prices, and notwithstanding salary and wage 
increases to all employes. 

During the present year major repairs and im- 
provements have been made to the reduction plant 
at a cost of $70,000.00. These improvements, to- 
gether with numerous repairs made by plant me- 
chanics, have increased the value of the physical 
property of the reduction plant to the extent of 
approximately $100,000.00, and will insure a con- 
tinuation of efficient operation of this plant and 
the disposal of the City's garbage in a sanitary 
manner. 

Bureau of Streets: 

The regular and systematic collection of house- 
hold wastes has much to do with the comfort and, 
in a measure, the health of a community. 

Garbage can be disposed of by incineration or 
reduction, but the vast amount of non-combusti- 
ble refuse can only be disposed of by dumping; and 
it is the final disposition of this class of waste 
that is presenting a difficult problem to solve. In 
this connection it can be said that the bringing 
to a successful close the purchase by the City of 
the quarry at Grand and Campbell avenues, to- 
gether with the installation of tractors and trail- 
ers in the ash-collection service, has enabled the 
Bureau of Streets to not only sharply reduce their 
collection costs, but to give more frequent col- 
lections as well in a large territory on the north- 
west side. 

It is planned to extend this service to cover the 
entire City. 

During the year, 1925, the sum of $3,478,515.00 
was altotted to maintain and repair 2,383 miles of 
paved streets and 558 miles of paved alleys, or a 
total of 2,941 miles of pavements, an increase of 
16 1/4% over 1924. 

Expenditures from this sum have been handled 
judiciously, early attention being given to the 
maintenance and repair of country roads m various 
sections of the City connecting up with the prin- 
cipal county highways bordering Chicago, such re- 
pairs having been accomplished by July 4th there- 
by making these roadways transitable to the gen- 
eral motoring public for the whole of the outing 
season.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



October 28, 1925. 



Repairs to asphalt pavement, which type of 
pavement represents our greatest mileage, have 
been made in approximately forty wards to the 
extent of 869,582 square yards. Before the con- 
struction season closes similar repairs will have 
been made in the remaining ten wards. 

Our surface heaters have been remodeled, bring- 
ing this type of equipment up to the most modern 
standard. 

The oiling of macadam pavements in the various 
wards has been completed over a surface of 2,554,- 
304 square yards, and repairs to this type of pave- 
ment, which in this present day of heavy trafTic 
is considered a non-permanent type, have been 
made only where deemed practical, (to the ex- 
tent of 502,091 square yards), as the policy of 
this bureau for the current year has been to ex- 
pend the Vehicle Tax Funds on the maintenance 
and repair of permanent types of pavement such 
as asphalt, brick, granite, etc. 

Repairs to brick pavement have been made to 
the extent of 85,831 square yards; to creosoted 
wood block pavement to the extent of 40,005 square 
yards: and to granite block pavement to the extent 
of 51.713 square yards. 

Curb and gutter repairs to the extent of 24,639 
lineal feet, and sidewalk repairs to the extent of 
97,537 square feet have been completed. 

The acquisition of new equipment together with 
the installation of modern apparatus in our asphalt 
plants has assisted materially in facilitating vehicle 
tax operations. 

Bureau of Engineering: 

The magnitude of the work in the Bureau of 
Engineering is indicated by the contracts let, which 
amounted in money to $4,210,000.00. The total 
appropriations for the year 1925 amounted to ap- 
proximately, $12,000,000.00. 

During this period the construction of two 
double-leaf, modern bascule bridges was started, 
namely Adams street over the South Branch of the 
Chicago River and One Hundredth street over the 
Calumet River. 

The west sub-structure of the Adams street 
bridge was completed in the fall of 1924, and made 
possible the completion of the concourse and drive- 
way of the Union Station along the west bank be- 
tween Jackson and Adams streets. The Adam street 
bridge will be open for traffic November 30, 1926, 
and replaces a swing bridge which has been in 
service about 36 years. 

The One Hundredth street bridge gives a new 
crossing at this point over the Calumet River, and 
forms a connection in one of the proposed new 
through street systems in the southwestern portion 
of the City, and will be completed about the first 
of 1927. 

The construction of a temporary bridge over 
the Calumet River at One Hundred and Thirty- 
fourth street, which is nearing completion, will 
make a crossing which, in connection with the im- 
provement of Hoxic and Torrence avenues, will 
provide a new thoroughfare between Chicago and 
the communities lying south and east of the City. 

Increased volume of traffic across the North 
Branch of the Chicago River at North Crawford ave- 
nue made necessary the widening of the bridge 
construct ed about ten years ago, and the work is 
now vvoll under way. 



The pile and trestle bridge over the West Fork 
of the South Branch of the Chicago River at South 
California avenue, which was destroyed by fire in 
1920, is now being reconstructed. 

Rush street between East North Water street and 
the river is being improved to harmonize with the 
Michigan avenue and South Water street improve- 
ments. 

Under the straightening of the river between 
Polk and Nineteenth streets a bridge will be nec- 
essary over the new channel at Roosevelt road. 

The location of the old swing bridge has been 
changed so that the viaduct can be used with a 
mmimum constricted traffic until the river 
straightening project is completed. 

The usual maintenance and repair of fifty-two 
movable and thirty fixed bridges was carried on 
until July, when the funds became so depleted that 
only the repairs necessary to keep the bridges in 
safe condition could be made. 

Four thousand five hundred tests were made on 
miscellaneous material, the most important of which 
were bronze, cast iron, cement, coal, concrete block, 
steel, and oil. 

In addition to the usual maintenance work on 
the distributing system of the Chicago water works, 
89 miles of new water pipe were laid varying in 
size from 6 to 48 inches; 1612 new hydrants set; 
4,147 meter connections made, and 18,004 new 
taps made, and 4,849 new meters installed. 

The total pumpage for the period was 322,270 
million gallons, compared with 308,165 million gal- 
lons for the year 1924. The average head pumped 
against was increased from 117.5 feet to 119.8 feet. 

Studies and investigations were made for future 
extensions and betterments to the water works sys- 
tem, both with respect to Chicago's own territory 
and the communities outside and within the Sani- 
tary District. 

A large amount of time was devoted to prepara- 
tion of the new meter ordinance. 

Bureau of Water: 

The total collections in the Bureau of Water for 
the period October 1, 1924, to September 30, 1925, 
amounted to $10,461,589.70 divided as follows: 

Assessed Rates $3,769,673.98 

Meter Rates 6,094,117.85 

Miscellaneous and Special Deposits.. 597,797.87 

This is a net increase over the same period for 
the previous year of $648,792.56. 

During this period the Field Assessors made a 
total of 237,596 inspections. The Rate Takers' 
readings of meter consumption totaled 344,806. The 
Plumbing Inspectors and Meter and Plumbing Ex- 
aminers made 6,409 visits, while the ShutofT Men 
made 41,212 visits and collected delinquent as- 
sessed rates accounts totaling $112,589.88. 

Much of the effort of this bureau during the 
last month has been directed toward devising means 
and formulating plans for a more efficient hand- 
line of the situation after the first of November 
when the new rates imposed by the meter ordi- 
nance will go into effect. 

Bureau of Parks, Public Playgrounds and Bathing 
Beaches; 

75,000 bedding plants and 1,800 potted plans were 
used in beautifying our parks, playgrounds and

bathing beaches. 4.500 trees and shrubs were 
taken from the Municipal Nursery and planted in 
the parks, playgrounds and athletic fields. 

At the Municipal Nursery 12,500 seedling elms 
and honey locusts were planted, and 25,000 cut- 
tings made of ornamental shrubs. 18,000 rooted 
cuttings were transplanted, and 4,500 shrubs and 
trees dug and delivered to the municipal parks. 
4,500 eims were trimmed and 1,500 five-year-old 
elms were thinned out and transplanted. 

Fourteen playgrounds and eight athletic fields 
were in operation during the year, with a total 
attendance of 2,632,900. 

Two new playgrounds were opened during the 
year — one at Van Buren street near Albany ave- 
nue, and the other in a very congested neighbor- 
hood, on Eighteenth place between Loomis and 
Throop streets. 

34,000 boys and 10,000 girls participated in 
competitive athletics, and 38,000 men and boys and 
1,800 girls and women participated in horseshoe 
tournaments. 

A bond issue of $500,000.00 was approved by 
a large majority in the spring election, and plans 
are under way for the acquisition of ground and 
the building of additional playgrounds in con- 
gested districts of the City. 

The recreation end of the Municipal Pier had 
the largest and most successful season in its history. 
The total estimated attendance was 2,221,500, and 
the attendance in the children's playground was 
172,600. 

The City received $51,029.41 as its share from all 
concessions. 

Bathing Beaches: 

The municipal bathing beaches were officially 
closed on Labor Day, September 7th, after the largest 
and most successful season ever had. The total 
attendance at the beaches and protected street- 
ends was 2,420,000, breaking all previous records. 
The receipts for the three beaches were $23,833.73, 
an increase of 46% over the receipts of last year. 

The big feature of the year, of which we are 
justly proud, is the fact that with the exceptionally 
long season and the hot summer, and although 
there were 102 deaths by drowning in Cook Coun- 
ty, there was not one drowning at any of the 
municipal bathing beaches or bathing places. 
Credit for this is due largely to our excellent 
corps of life guards, selected after most rigid ex- 
aminations, and to the splendid discipline main- 
tained among them throughout the season. 

Bureau of Rivers and Harbors: 

The offices of the Bureau of River and Harbors 
were moved to the Municipal Pier April 25th and 
on July 15th the Bureau of Municipal Pier was 
placed under their jurisdiction, eliminating the 
position of Pier Superintendent. All harbor ac- 
tivity is thereby more centralized. 

Approximately two miles of docks were repaired 
at a cost of $250,000.00; four-fifths of a mile was 
rebuilt at a cost of approximately $200,000.00. 
Five sunken canal boats were removed from the 
North Branch of the Chicago River. 

There was 47 bridges operated during the year, 
each 24 hours daily. The ferry service at One 
Hundredth street and the Calumet River had to be 
discontinued July 15th on account of the con- 
struction of the bridges at that location. 



Out of funds set up by the City Council, this 
bureau completed the work of repairing and re- 
building the docks at Weed street and the North 
Branch Canal. In addition to this repairs were 
made to City docks at Wallace street on the South 
Branch of the river and at Lumber street at Samp- 
son's Canal. Also, in behalf of the Board of Local 
Improvements, this bureau contracted for and super- 
vised the repairs to docks within Ogden avenue and 
Ashland avenue, also, on the North Branch Canal 
and River respectively. 

Speaking generally, City-owned docks are in bet- 
ter condition than they have been in twenty years. 

Municipal Pier: 

During the past year several needed improve- 
ments were made. 160 steel sliding doors of the 
south freight shed were repaired and 192 doors 
concreted up at a total cost of $12,000.00. 2,340 
feet of new copper gutter and 600 feet of down- 
spouting were installed at an expense of $4,500.00. 

The only other major rehabilitation was that of 
repairing the terra cotta and brickwork of the 
recreation section. This masonry had deteriorated 
due principally to the extreme weather condition 
the pier faces. These repairs are still in progress 
and the cost thereof will approximate $25,000.00. 
A large amount of painting of steel and ironwork 
was also accomplished by day labor. 

The record of landings made by boats show 
that 21 excursion boats operated from the recrea- 
tion section and open wharfage for a total of 
1,467 dockings, and 33 steamships operated from 
the commercial section, making 1,248 dockings 
during the year. 126 wharfmg permits were is- 
sued for the excursion boats. 

Following is a statement of revenue from the 
Municipal Pier from October 1, 1924, to September 
30, 1925: 



Leases and Rents $ 79,735.84 

City Warehouse Storage 16,817.99 

Docking and Wharfage 6,562.19 

Recreation Concessions '51,029.41 

Miscellaneous 2,468.14 



Total Revenue $156,613.57 



The cost of operation and maintenance for the 
same period was approximately $200,000.00. 

For handling commodities stored in the City 
Warehouse on the pier a capital account was es- 
tablished, the earnings of which were $14,162.99, 
with expenditures of $12,645.95 for the year. 

Bureau of Architecture: 

The work of this department consists of prepar- 
ing plans and specifications for projects of the 
various departments of the City, as required by 
them. Studies, sketches and tentative layouts are 
being prepared for the proposed Central Station 
and Courts Building to be erected on the site lo- 
cated at 1121-31 South State street. The contem- 
plated building is to be of stone exterior and fire- 
proof construction throughout, and will be of 
sufficient size to house the following activities : 

Police Department offices. Detective Bureau, First 
and Second Precincts, Secretary of Police, Vehicle 
Bureau, Custodian of Lost and Stolen Property, 
Drill Master, Speeders', Moral, Domestic Relations 
and all municipal courts other than civil, with 
proper accommodations for the bailiffs and clerks 
of the courts.

Final working drawings were completed and ap- 
proved for the exterior work of the Western Ave- 
nue Pumping Station now under construction on 
the site located at the northeast corner of Wes- 
tern avenue and Fiftieth street. The design of 
the structure is along modern Gothic lines, with 
the exterior of the front and sides faced with stone 
and the rear exterior of face brick. The project 
comprises a pump room, auxiliary room, boiler 
room, office, coal bunkers, scale house and repair 
shops with all necessary facilities. 

The necessary changes were made in the heating 
plant of the City Hall building" for the purpose of 
furnishing steam to heat the County Building from 
the City Hall plant. 

Bureau of Sewers: 

The following is a tabulation of the activities of 
this bureau from January 1 to OctojDer 1, 1925: 

Sewers flushed (feet) 6,000,000 

Sewers scraped (feet) 569,000 

Number of catchbasins cleaned by Auto

sewers, inlets and lids (jobs) 8,135 

House Drain Receipts (14,408 jobs) . .$150,045.12 

Bureau of Maps and Plats: 

Notwithstanding the unprecedented increase in 
the work of this bureau during the year 1924 over 
previous years, the current year has kept pace 
and, in a number of instances, even exceeded the 
operations of 1924. The Board of Local Improve- 
ments has been exceedingly active, the street 
opening and widening division having required 
about 20% more than in 1924. 

Thus far 294 subdivision, addition, dedication, 
vacation and miscellaneous plats have been ap- 
proved by the Examiner of Subdivisions. The area 
of these amounts to 1335.83 acres. 

The activities of the public information counter 
have been greater than ever before. An approxi- 
mate record kept on various days during the year, 
showing the public use of records, discloses the 
fact that from 600 to 1,500 people daily have had 
access to these records. 

The Survey Division of the Bureau of Maps and 
Plats has had a year of great activity. The com- 
prehensive survey of the present South Branch of 
the Chicago River from Polk street to Twenty- 
second street and the adjoining proposed river 
straightening location have been completed and 
maps of same duly compiled. 

Street and alley encroachments of the C, A. & 
S. F. R. R. right of way as shown by survey were 
satisfactorily settled during the year hy the passage 
of an ordinance of the City Council, July 15, 1925. 

An encroachment survey of the B. & 0. Ry. has 
practically been completed. 

This division is also engaged in the necessary 
survey and map work incidental to the dredging of 
Lake Calumet Harbor. 

BOARD OF LOCAL IMPROVEMENTS. 

The Board of Local Improvements for nine 
months ondii^g September 30th, has held public 
hearings and reported out 900 ordinances for pas- 



sage to the City Council. This involves 78,432 
pieces of property and represents improvements of 
an estimated cost of $26,273,000.00. 

South Water Street Iprovement: 

Work on the South Water street improvement 
(Wacker drive) has been carried forth determined- 
ly and at this writing all of the buildings in the 
line of the improvement has been removed except 
one, on which we are now at work. Contracts ag- 
gregating $6,000,000.00 have been entered into for 
various work, which represents about 80% of the 
work to be done. The sections between Madison 
and Randolph streets on Market street have been 
completed, and, of the entire improvement, 40% 
is now complete. 

In the prosecution of this gigantic improvement 
the work has been so arranged that there has been 
no interruption in the surface or elevated lines. 
Temporary roadways and other accommodations 
have befen made in order to facilitate traffic in 
this congested section of the City, while the ■ im- 
provement is under way. 

The great increase in underground facilities de- 
majided by various public utilities to meet the 
development incident to this improvement has been 
amply provided for. 

The magnitude of this work as well as the ad- 
vanced steps taken in constructive methods have 
attracted nation-wide attention and received uni- 
versal commendation. 

There will be required in this improvement, be- 
fore completion, 17,000,000 pounds of reinforcing 
steel, and 134,000 cubic yards of concrete. 

The structure is built on caissons driven to 
rock or hard pan, at 90 feet below the existing 
grades, with a low-level thoroughfare five feet 
above the river and minimum headroom of twelve 
feet 4 inches on the low level. The upper road- 
way will be 72 feet in width, with sidewalks vary- 
ing from 18 to 24 feet in width and changes in all 
intersecting streets to provide suitable ramps to 
the upper level which is on an even grade with 
the bridges across the river. 

Other Improvements: 

Cornell street subway under the C. &. N. W. Ry. 
has been completed. Work has progressed as far 
as possible on the Cortland street subway at Cly- 
bourn street junction, until legal proceedings af- 
fecting property needed for further work are dis- 
posed of. This should not take to exceed 30 days. 

Relatively a mile and a half of buildings on the 
line of the Ashland avenue widening have been 
moved back to the new lines, and that section of 
Ashland avenue and Clark street between Edge- 
water and Ridge avenues has been completed with 
new pavement. 

Eighty per cent of the legal proceedings on 16 
miles of frontage on Ashland avenue now in court, 
have been completed. We look for final confirma- 
tion on those sections of Ashland avenue, between 
Firty-seventh and Sixty-ninth streets and Lake 
street and Irving Park boulevard before Decem- 
ber 1st. 

Court decisions holding that the former pro- 
ceedings for the Western avenue improvement, be- 
tween Lawrence avenue and Thirty-first street 
were faulty — necessitated a recasting of the entire 
proceeding. New ordinances for 95% of it have 
been prepared and passed, or the rolls have bee;; 
filed in court and confirmation for the section 



October 28, 1925.

lying between Lawrence avenue and FuUerton ave- 
nue, which is now on trial, can be speedily looked 
for. 

The Clinton street improvement, between Har- 
rison street and Roosevelt road, which has been 
in court for years, has been confirmed and the Polk 
street improvement should be ' confirmed within 
the next month. 

The remaining three streets in that system, Jef- 
ferson, Desplaines and Taylor streets, are all in 
court awaiting trial, with every prospect that the 
widening of Clinton street will be started next 
summer. 

On the Twenty-second street improvement, build- 
ings sufficient for the construction of the ramp 
from the Twenty-third street viaduct to Twenty- 
second street and Calumet avenue have been 
wrecked, the ground cleared, and the ramp is now 
under construction. The balance of the street to 
Michigan avenue will be widened as soon as the 
assessment now in collection permits us to pay for 
the property to be taken. 

Twenty-second street from Michigan avenue to 
Archer avenue is likewise in court, with about one- 
third of the suits disposed of. The balance will 
be at issue this winter. 

Proceedings for the opening and widening of 
Robey street, between Fullerton avenue and Di- 
versey avenue and from Blue Island avenue to 
Thirty-ninth street have been started. This will 
permit of the construction of a bridge which will 
span the Drainage Canal, with a viaduct above the 
high line of the Santa Fe Railroad, and the open- 
ing of the street to Archer avenue. 

A proceeding to widen Milwaukee avenue from 
Edmund street to the northern City limits is on 
trial with 75% of the suits already disposed of. 
Confirmation should be had within the next thirty 
days. 

Halsted street, from Vincennes avenue, for two 
and a half miles to the southern City limits is 
likewise up for widening. The roll has been filed 
in court and the case should be tried this winter. 

The same situation exists regarding Elston ave- 
nue, which is being widened from Lawrence avenue 
to Milwaukee avenue. 

All preliminary work for the widening of North 
LaSalle street from Washington street to Lin- 
coln Park has been completed. Surveys, ap- 
praisals and estimates have been finished and the 
cases are about to be called for trial. 

Condemnation rolls filed so far this year total 
$19,000,000.00. In addition to the major items 
outlined above, there have been 56 other improve- 
ments filed. At this time 64 miles of street widen- 
ing proceedings are pending. 

Special attention has been given during the year 
toward opening up thoroughfares leading to the 
limits of the City. 

The paving of Indianapolis avenue between 
Ewing avenue and One Hundred and Sixth street 
and connecting with the Indiana State highways 
to the south and east has been completed. 

The paving of Torrence avenue from Ninety- 
fifth street to One Hundred and Fourth street has 
been completed, and that road will now be made 
available to connect with the County highway at 
One Hundred and Thirty-eighth street. 



Grand avenue, has been paved and opened from 
Nagle avenue to Harlem avenue, connecting with 
the County highway at the latter point. 

Addison street has been paved to the city limits. 

Central avenue has been paved for two and a 
half miles, from Grand avenue to Lawrence ave- 
nue. The balance of it to connect with Higgins 
road will be completed early in the spring. 

Narragansett avenue has been opened from 
Grand avenue to Irving Park boulevard. 
Diversey avenue has been completed from Craw- 
ford avenue to Cicero avenue. 

One Hundred and Seventh street has been com- 
pleted from' Vincennes avenue to Hoyne avenue. 
Stony Island avenue from Sixty-ninth street to 
Seventy-ninth street, Madison street . from Cicero 
avenue to Austin avenue, and Devon avenue from 
Western avenue to Kedzie avenue in order to pro- 
vide more avenues of ingress and egress from the 
City to connect with County thoroughfares. 

Proceedings for the widening of roadways by 
narrowing the sidewalks have been completed and 
are now in various stages of progress on such im- 
portant streets as Halsted street from Fulton street 
south, two and a half miles to the river; Milwau- 
keen avenue from Desplaines street to Lawrence 
avenue avenue and sections of Madison street be- 
tween Canal street and Crawford avenue. The 
purpose of this reconstruction is to provide a line 
of travel between a car parked at the curb and the 
street car lines, which will add at least 50% to 
the carrying capacity of these thoroughfares. 

The sewer division, of the Board of Local Im- 
provements during the year, completed several 
large systems. — the Bryn Mawr avenue sewer, the 
Harlem avenue system. Seventy-ninth street system 
and One Hundred and Fifteenth street system. 
These are practically all in new territory and 
greatly needed for proper sanitation and develop- 
ment. The total work of the division so far this 
year is 60 miles of sewers and 15 miles of house 
drains. 

The objection of the average citizen to sewer 
construction is most marked, despite the fact that 
it is the basic requirement for all subsequent work 
that is to be done and public sentiment should be 
educated as to the need of both sanitary sewers 
and storm water sewers. Main trunk lines sewers 
are an absolute necessity now, and will become 
increasingly so in the future. 

Final proceedings on the supplemental assessment 
for the completion of the much discussed Clifton 
avenue and Broadway sewer are pending in court. 
A decision may be expected within the next month. 

The work of the Sidewalk Department thus far, 
is approximately 200 miles of walks, at a cost of 
$2,'00'0,000.00. 

Street paving proceedings involving a total of 
1,500,000 square yards have been completed up to 
date. About 70 miles of alleys have likewise been 
completed. 

Due to economies eflfected by the Board from the 
5% allowed by law in all special assessment proceed- 
ings to cover cost of same to the City, expenditures 
have been kept within 3%. thus netting a saving of 
$327,000.00 which has been transferred to the credit 
of the Corporate Fund.

LAW DEPARTMENT. 

On July 15th there was transmitted to your Honor- 
able Body a report of the activities of the Law 
Department in connection with the regular session 
of 'the 54th General Assembly, which was ordered 
published in the Journal of Proceedings of said date. 

Detailed reference was made in said report upon 
the passage of sundry Senate and House Bills regard- 
ed as coming within the City's progl-am, which in- 
cluded House Bill 384 extending the tax rate of $1.85 
for three more years, and the defeat of the Termin- 
able Public Utility Permit and Park vehicle tax 
bills. 

The result of the activities of the Law Department 
before the Boards of Assessors and Review is not 
capable of exact computation, yet we feel that it 
will show decided gains in securing higher valuations 
for purposes of taxation. Complaints of the under- 
valuation of personal property to the extent of $56,- 
614,000 in probated estates have been filed by the 
City. Numerous complaints on the undervaluation 
of real estate have also been filed. 

The following table shows the extent and disposi- 
tion of ligitation in which the City of Chicago was 



defendant. 

From October 1, 1924, to October 1, 1925: 

Cases brought in Circuit Court (Law) 100 

Cases brought in Circuit (Chancery) 88 

Cases brought in Superior Court (Law) 437 

Cases brought in Superior Court (Chancery) . . 38 

Cases brought in Municipal Court 122

Cases disposed of in Circuit Court (Chancery) . . 73 

Cases disposed of in Superior Court (Law) 369 

Cases disposed of in Superior Court (Chancery) . . 28 
Cases disposed of in Municipal Court 79 



Appeals to Appellate and Supreme Courts in which 
the City was either plaintiff or defendant from the 
October term of 1924 to the' October term of 1925 
have been decided in the following manner: 

Favorable Against No decision Compromise 
to the City to date 

12 4 16 1 

The City instituted 203 Municipal Court suits, 83 
of which have been disposed of, 80 pending and 40 
in which summons have been returned with no 
service. These cases were brought for the purpose 
of securing payments due upon warrants for collec^ 
tion issued out of the office of the City Comptroller 
which had been ignored by the debtors. 

During the year just passed 521 written opinions 
have been requested by department heads. Chairman 
of Council Committees and Aldermen, of which 511 
have been answered. Ten recent requests are still 
under consideration. 

Vf'ry definite progress is being made toward the 
disposition of certain important pending ligitation 
affecting utilities. The "North Shore Case", (a suit 
to test the right of the Chicago, North Shore and 
Milwaukee Railroad Company to operate over the 
tracks of the Chicago Rapid Transit Company with- 
out a franchise) has been specially set for hearing 
before Judge Denis E. Sullivan on December first. 
On November 24, suit to test the right of the Chicago 
Molnr (]()H(',h Company to operate buses on city 
streets without franchise or permit from the City of 
Chicago is set for hearing before Judge Hugo M. 
Friend, 

Hearings are now proceeding in the City of Chicago 
vs Illinois Tunnel Company et al. before Master in 



Chancery Sidney S. Pollack. This is a suit for ap- 
proximately $1,000,000.00 claimed to be due the City 
as compensation under the Illinois Tunnel Company 
ordinance of February 20, 1899. 

Suits have been brought in the Municipal Court of 
Chicago to recover over $2,000,000.00 interest and 
additional compensation alleged to be due from the 
Chicago Railways Company and Chicago City Rail- 
way Company under the terms of the 1907 ordi- 
nances. These cases will be at issue and can be set 
for trial after November 5th. 

The Collection Division for the twelve month pe- 
riod ending September 30th reports receipts totaling 
$357,198.26. This includes the sum of $53,310.22 
which the City receives today as a result of a recent 
favorable decision in the case of City of Chicago 
vs Illinois Bell Telephone Company. 

Publication in two volumes of the opinions rend- 
ered by the Law Department from April 17, 1923 to 
April 16, 1925 have been completed and copies there- 
of are now ready for distribution. In addition to 
this publication of recent opinions, there has been 
compiled and edited the opinions of Hon. Edgar B. 
Tolrnan and Hon. James Hamilton Lewis, Corporation 
Counsel, covering the period from April 10, 1905 to 
April 15, 1907. The publication of the Tolman-Lewis 
volume relieves a hiatus in the publications of the 
opinions of the Corporation Counsel and their staff 
from January 1872 to the present time so that all are 
now available for the use of the bar and the public. 

The law department of the Board of Local Im- 
provements has obtained judgment of confirmation 
in 315 special assessment cases as follows: 



Nature of No. of Cases Amount of Roll 
Improvement 

Paving 214 $10,552,470.00 

Sewers 35 453,750.00 

Drains 4 10,319.00 

Water Service and 

Supply 6 52,265.00 

Sidewalks 56 790,908.00 



Total $11,859,312.00 

Judgment of confirmation was also procured in 
the following condemnation cases for the opening 
and widening of streets, alleys, etc. : 

Widening of Clinton street from Harrison street 
to Roosevelt Road. 

Opening Wilson avenue from North LaVergne ave- 
nue to Avondale avenue. 

Opening East 130th street from Indiana avenue to 
Torrence avenue. 

Opeing and widening alleys in the block bounded 
by Waveland, North Lockwood, Peterson and 
North Long avenue. 

Opening Colfax avenue. 

Extending Kingston avenue across the B. & 0. Rail- 
road Tracks. 

Opening Essex avenue across the B. & 0. Railroad 
Tracks. 

Opening Chappel avenue from 74th to 75th streets. 
Opening East End avenue across the B. & 0. tracks. 
Widening North Central avenue between west North 
avenue and West Grand avenue. 

The President of the Board of Local Improvements 
has inaugurated a policy of granting no concessions 
or reductions in special assessment proceedings, but 
of trying all cases for the purpose of endeavoring to 
confirm the roll as levied by the Board of Local Im- 
provements. In consequence thereof every one of 
these cases has involved a real contest. This practice 



October 28, 1925. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1349 



has resulted in the confirmation of the rolls in special 
assessment and condemnation cases with fewer re- 
ductions in number and amount than during any 
previous year. 

A total of 152 suits defended by the City Attorney 
was disposed of by trial in which judgment was 
entered either by agreed settlements, verdict or dis- 
missal in the Appellate, Superior, Circuit, Municipal 
and County Courts. 

The action over division shows an increase in col- 
lections of 22% over last year. 

The following is a summary of the work ac- 
complished by the Fire Department Attorney from 
October 1, 1924 to October 1, 1925:

CITY COMPTROLXiER, 

Our City's financial status for the year 1925 is in- 
dicated as follows: 

Corporate Fund 

Estimated Revenue and Expense January i , 
to December 3i, 1923. 

Deficit January 1, 1925 $ 38,628.49

Expense — ■ 

Interest $ 1,310,008.00 

Other expense 45,115,511.50 46,425,519.50 

Excess of Expense over Revenue $883,292.12 

Estimated Deficit December 31, 1925 453,418.88 

This statement contemplates and is based upon a 
Loss and Cost of 8%, and the resources of the fund 
as shown herein will be increased in both the years 
1925 and 1926 by the amount of any increased as- 
sessed valuation multiplied by $1.85 per $100.00 
(with allowance for Loss and Cost). However, it 
would require an increase of over $73,000,000 of as- 
sessed valuation this year, with no decrease in 1926, 
to overcome the insufficiency shown, and allow an 
expenditure of $45,115,511.50 in both 1925 and 1926. 

Approximately 70% of the entire revenue for 
Corporate Purposes is derived from taxes. In 1917 
the City received from "Miscellaneous Resources" 
55% of the total revenue for the Corporate Purposes 



Fund. Today, the City receives from "Miscellaneous 
Revenue" only 33-1/3% of the total Corporate Reve- 
nue. This discrepancy in the "Miscellaneous Reve- 
nue" is constantly increasing. During the current 
year there was a loss in the Electrical Inspection 
Receipts of approximately $350,000. 

Our constitutional debt incurring power and lim- 
itations estimated as of September 8, 1925 is $89,409,- 
914.75 against which a total of $80,256,974.88 has 
been already used. This leaves a balance of $9,152,-/ 
939.87 still to be exercised for public improvements. 

Real Estate: 

The principal purchase was the completion of the 
deal for the new Pumping Station site at South West- 
ern boulevard, and 50th street. On this purchase 
there was expended in 1925 $130,535.36 

Other purchases were the lot at 3513-15 
W. 63rd street, 50x124 feet for a Police 

Station 8,500.00 

N. E. corner Grace and Menard, 49x123 

feet, for Fire Station 3,500.00 

516-18 North Western avenue, 50x127 

feet, garage for Street Department 2,300.00 

Total Real Estate Purchases for 1925 $144,835.36 

Notable real estate deals which have been under 
consideration but not completed have been (a) ex- 
change of part of the Bridewell property for the 
Countv Jail property; (b) purchase of the site for 
the new Central Police Station building; and (c) 
purchase of several sites for additional playgrounds. 

Taxes and Special Assessments on City Property: 

The Corporate Fund has paid taxes and assess- 
ments amounting to $111,548.90 and the Water Fund 
$24 078.61 as against $18,974.54 paid by the Corporate 
Fund in 1924 and $8,392.60 by the Water Fund. 
These increases are due principally to the special 
assessment paid for the South Water street and Mar- 
ket street improvements and the payment of $19,- 
413 12 by the Corporate Fund on leased properties 
where the leases call for the payment of general 
taxes by the City. 

Tax Settlements: 

The total amount paid the city to date on account 
of tax claim settlements (exclusive of forfeited spe- 
cials) is $146,887.00. This will probably amount to 
$175,000.00 by the end of the year,, as against $106,- 
469 84 in 1924. In addition, the County Treasurer 
has paid the City $396,365.81 for the redemptions 
of forfeited special assessments in the years from 
1921 to 1924. 

Comparative Figures: 

Figures taken from the 1924 Report of the United 
■States Census Bureau show the per capita govern- 
mental expense of the nine largest cities as follows: 

Chicago $56.90. 

Detroit $106.48 

Los Angeles 102.88 

New York 72.38 

Cleveland 70.66 

Baltimore • 57.11

Efficiency Division: 

The 1925 Budget or Comptroller's Estimates prep- 
ared by the Efficiency Division was passed with very 
few changes. 

The Division made an investigation as to methods 
of buying major equipment for various City depart- 
ments in cooperation with the Committee on Finance 
staff and assisted the Department of Public Works, 
Bureau of Engineering, in the preparation of cer- 
tain technical specifications covering meters and 
pumping machinery. 

The work of the Warrants for Collection section 
consisted of the handling, mailing, checking and ac- 
counting for approximately one hundred twenty-five 
thousand warrants for collection rendered for various 
kinds of services performed by different departments 
of the City government. It also included the daily 
audit and check of the City Collector's reports of 
collections, which entailed enforcing payment 
through various means of approximately twenty- 
two thousand delinquent items. At the present time, 
we report 97% of all warants for collection issued 
during the year as having been collected. The bal- 
ance, 3%, either require additional work or are 
current items which have not as yet become delinq- 
uent. 

DEPARTMENT.' OF POLICE. 

The Department of Police is operating with a 
quota of 300 men short of its numerical strength of 
throe years ago. Notwithstanding that fact, the fol- 
lowing summary of activities dealing with arrests 
and convictions for major crimes is self-explanatory: 

For the year ending July 31, 1923, there were 192 
persons convicted and sent to the Joliet Penitentiary 
and 108 were sent to Pontiac. 221 persons who were 
charged with felonies entered a plea of guilty to 
minor offenses and were sent to the House of Cor- 
rection and 46 to the County Jail, making a total of 
567 convicted during the year. 

For the year ending July 31, 1924, there were 267 
persons convicted and sent to the Joliet Penitentiary 
and 164 to Pontiac. 272 persons, charged with fel- 
onies, on a plea of guilty to minor offenses, were 
sent to the House of Correction, and 68 to the County 
Jail, making a total of 771 for the year, or a 30% 
increase in activity over the preceding year. 

For the year just ending, July 31, 1925, there were 
447 persons convicted and sent to the Joliet Peniten- 
tiary and 299 to Pontiac. 415 persons, charged with 
felonies, on a plea of guilty to minor offenses, were 
sent to fhe House of Correction, and 42 to thie 
County Jail, making a total of 1,203 for the year, an 
increase of nearly 60% over the preceding year or 
about 100% over the year preceding that. 

In addition to the above figures, showing such a 
decided increase in the efficiency of the members 
of fhe police force, there are at present more than 
1,100 persons in the County Jail awaiting trial. 

The activities of the department in suppressing 
vice, gambling and the illicit sale of liquor have re- 
duced complaints for offenses of this kind to a mini- 
mum. It is very rare now that complaints are lodged 
with fhe department for violations of this nature, 
whereas two years ago each mail brought innumer- 
able letters voicing serious complaints relative to 
conditions throughout the city. 



The excellent work of the Police Department was 
accomplished through the medium of the change 
made in the method of policing the city. Twenty 
large touring cars, operated out of the Detective 
Bureau, patrol the streets of Chicago, in twenty 
separate zones into which the city has been divided, 
during the twenty-four hours of the day. These cars 
are manned by crews of five men each, picked as 
the best the department contains. In addition to 
the twenty zone cars, one hundred and forty Ford 
cars are assigned on an average of four to a district. 
Each one of these cars is marked on all sides and 
on the top with the word "Police", so that they may 
be as readily distinguished as the uniformed police- 
man doing regular police duty. The crews of these 
cars are given regular posts. Usually they take 
care of three posts with two men and do it better 
than under the old system of patrolling on foot. 

Sixty motorcycles, manned by an adequate force to 
keep them going the twenty-four hours of the day 
look after motor vehicle violations in addition to 
regular police duty. 

Arrangements are being made to further motorize 
the department to the extent of adding one hundred 
additional Ford cars, and ten additional touring cars, 
and to establish a garage on each side of the city 
where these cars can be properly taken care of. 

HOUSE OP CORRECTION. 

During the nine months just past, the total num- 
of prisoners received was 17,013, indicating a total 
for the full year of about 22,700. Comparative figures 
follow, showing number of prisoners received dur- 
ing the last five years: 

1921 8,565 

1922 11,818 

1923 15,096 

1924 15,496 

1925 22,700 

The great and unexpected increase in the number 
of commitments is hampering us considerably, as we 
were unprepared to house, feed and clothe so large 
a numb*r. We are frequently receiving over 100 a 
day. On July 7th, we received 185 new prisoners. 
The daily average of prisoners for the 9 months 
ending September 30th, was 2,306 and there is every 
indication of about the same average for the entire 
year, as against 1,552 for 1924. 

Our receipts from the sale of brick and crushed 
stone were negligible compared to former years, as 
our brick yard and stone crusher plant were idle 
the greater part of the year. This is owing to the 
fact that our old crusher engine room boilers were 
condemned by the city boiler inspector as positively 
unsafe. We are installing new boilers secured from 
the 22nd street pumping station. 

The receipts from the sale of products of the in- 
stitution (brick, stone, pottery, brooms, printing, 
etc.,) and from laundry work for the Police and 
Health Departments, also boarding of prisoners for 
United States, Cook County and outside towns, sale 
of old material (city junk yard), sale of farm prod- 
ucts and miscellaneous receipts for the 9 months 
ending September 30, 1925, total $228,971.07. The 
receipts for the full year will be close to $305,295.00. 

Receipts for the past five years (1925 partly esti- 
mated) : 



1921 $382,281.59 

1922 361,785.07 

1923 302,580.02

Total expenditures for 9 months, for the various 
budget items (including salaries, general material 
and supplies, provisions, hospital supplies, fuel, ma- 
chinery, boarding female offenders in Houses of Shel- 
ter No. 1 and No. 2), amounted to $436,108.94, in- 
cluded in a total expenditure for the year of $581,-

FIRE DEPARTMENT 

Complete reorganization has been effected in the 
Fire Department in conformity with the provisions 
of an ordinance passed by your Honorable Body 
last year. Assisted by the Law Department the rules 
and regulations of this department were revised and 
rewritten to meet changed conditions and to con- 
form with the statutes, ordinances and civil service 
rules. This revision, together with redistricting the 
city into nine divisions created a unity of command, 
and the assignment of division fire marshals thereto 
has resulted in the elimination of conflict and con- 
fusion. Good results have been secured by this 
change and the plan is popular with the men and is 
generally approved by experts on the subject. 

Due directly to various civic improvements, such 
as the South Water street improvement and the 
widening of Ashland avenue, it has been necessary 
to abandon a number of old fire station sites and 
relocate and construct new stations. These new 
locations have been carefully studied with the idea 
of furnishing prompt service to large and other- 
wise unprotected communities. The abandonment of 
our East South Water street site, necessitated the 
removal and relocation of three motor units to a 
temporary location on the near north side. When 
the South Water street improvement is completed 
the erection of a monumental memorial fire station 
is contemplated. This structure will permanently 
house these three companies on the proposed square 
at the head of Wacker drive and Michigan boule- 
vard. This station should be a pride of Chicago 
as M-ell as the best and most useful station of any 
in this country. Through the co-operation and as- 
sistance of the Board of Local Improvements this 
highly valuable permanent site has been secured 
without additional cost to the city. 

The North Ashland avenue widening project made 
necessary the removal of the engine company which 
was located at No. 5359 North Ashland avenue to 
temporary quarters with hook and ladder company 
No. 24 at No. 1545 Rosemont avenue, in Rogers Park. 
This change thereby providing increased fire pro- 
tection for Rogers Park. Further increased fire 
protection was also provided for this district during 
the year by the installation of an aerial hook and 
ladder truck to replace the straight-frame truck 
which was in service at hook and ladder company 
No. 25. These changes give adequate fire protection 
to this district. 

A new building to take the place of the one which 
formerly stood at No. ■5359 North Ashland avenue 
is now under construction and from all indications 
will be ready for occupancy before the new year. 

During the present year engine company No. 93, 
an extra emergency company in the downtown dis- 
trict, was placed out of the service and its man 
power utilized in the organization of a hook and lad- 



der company which was placed in service in the 
northwest part of the city with quarters in the same 
building occupied by engine company No. 124 at 
Nos. 4426-28 North Kedzie avenue. The installa- 
tion of this hook and ladder company very mate- 
rially added to the protection of the citizens and 
property in that vicinity. 

A new water tower company was also organized 
and placed in service in quarters with engine com- 
pany No. 14 at No. 509 West Chicago avenue; here- 
tofore one such powerful tower was expected to 
cover all big fires. It is very necessary to have two 
or perhaps three of these efiicient fire fighters. The 
City has erected a new station at No. 6411 South 
Central avenue (Clearing) in which a new engine 
company has been installed. 

The establishment of these new fire companies 
was accomplished without the employment of addi- 
tional men inasmuch as engine company No. 93 
was discontinued and men heretofore assigned to 
fire headquarters, drill school, fire attorney's office 
and repair shop on work other than fire duty were 
placed back in active fire service. 

During the present year a new bungalow type of 
fire station located at Nos. 3509-11 Lowe avenue 
was completed and engine company No. 29 was in- 
stalled therein. 

Ground has been broken for the erection of new 
fire stations at 24th street and Wabash avenue and 
at Grace and Menard streets, two very important 
and hazardous locations. 

The fire Lug question is very serious because most 
of the fire tugs have been in operation for over 
fifteen years. They are of the old expensive type. 
Steam has to be kept up continuously and conse- 
quently the cost of fuel is very great and the up- 
keep of these old boats is very expensive. In fact 
it is thought that running over a period of less than 
ten years the additional expense would buy new 
fire tugs. The cost of installing four up-to-date 
fire tugs is so great that the City cannot afford to 
buy them out of current revenue. Since the life 
of a fire tug is more than twenty years, consideration 
may properly be given to a proposition to include 
such expense in a future bond issue. 

The condition of our fire alarm system also de- 
mands consideration. The telephone company is 
now figuring on a plan whereby we may rent their 
conduits and have them install .call boxes as quickly 
as telephones can be installed at a nominal rental. 
If this plan can be satisfactorily worked out, it will 
take care of the demand for the installation of ad- 
ditional fire alarm boxes, and possibly delay the 
necessity of the City's providing funds for the re- 
habilitation and extension of the system. 

The necessity for a high water pressure system 
is every day becoming more apparent. In its ab- 
sence the department has arranged in all new build- 
ings to provide an outside connection from the large 
pumps installed in these buildings for house tanks 
and sprinkler systems, thus eliminating the neces- 
sity of bringing many engines into the loop district 
and leaving the outside sections unprotected. This 
will give a great deal of added mutual fire protec- 
tion particularly in the loop ditsrict. 

The department continued the purchase of 3-inch 
hose with 21/2 -inch couplings, which, as was ex- 
plained in a previous message, produces a greater 
stream and higher pressure at a minimum engine 
pressure. This plan has been heartily approved by 
the boards of underwriters.

October 28, 1925. 



The following is a statement of number of alarms 
and number of fires for the period January 1st to 
August 31, 1925, as compared \vith the number of 
alarms and fires for the same period of the year 
1924: 

January 1st January 1st 

to to 
August 31st August 31st 
1924 1925 

Number of fire alarms 14,973 18,612 

Number of fires 9,978 13,378 

A resume of the work done by the Fire Prevention 
Bureau for the first 9 months of this year follows: 

Over 90,000 inspections of buildings of various 
occupancies were made during the first 9 months of 
the year. These inspections included nightly in- 
spections of theaters and moving picture houses. 

Approximately 600 suits were started during this 
time against violators of the fire prevention ordi- 
nances. 

In 70% of these cases corrections were made. 
1,344 permits were issued for oil installation. 
42 permits were issued for installing sprinkler 
equipments. 

455 licenses were issued for fire guards and stage 
firemen, who are employed by the various theaters 
and moving picture houses. 

The total revenue derived from these permits and 
licenses amounted to approximately $31,000.00. 

The thorough inspection drive on schools, thea- 
ters, hospitals and public assembly halls, made by 
the bureau was of great educational value from a 
fire prevention standpoint and resulted in eliminat- 
ing may fire hazards. 

There was a considerable increase in court cases 
during the year, due especially to the hearty co- 
operation of the Law Department. 

In the work of fire prevention, many fire preven- 
tion meetings were held by schools and civic organi- 
zations, and addressed by men from the Fire Pre- 
vention Bureau. Posters and literature were dis- 
tributed. Talks over the radio were also given. 

DEPARTMENT OP HEALTH. 

The state of Chicago's health during the past 12 
months has been satisfactory. 

During the year— October, 1924, to September, 
1925, inclusive — there was a slight rise in the death 
rate; namely, from 11.11 to 11.36 per 1,000 popula- 
tion, but the principal increases were in heart dis- 
eases, 791, and cerebral hemorrhage, 369 — both dis- 
eases prinripally of advanced life. Other increases 
included 329 pneumonia, 112 in tuberculosis, 93 in 
whooping cnught, 82 in influenza and 53 in measles. 

On the other hand, there was a saving of 232 lives 
from congenital defects and accidents, 55 from diph- 
theria, 13 from typhoid fever and 107 from all other 
causes under one year of age. 

Bureau of Communicable Diseases: 

The period under discussion was singularly free 
from epidemics. Scarlet fever, measles and whoop- 
ing cough cases however were more numerous than 
for the preceding corresponding period. The con- 
trol of diphtheria is most gratifying. In 1922, the 
deaths from diphtheria numbered 678; in 1923, they 
had dropped to 365, and in 1924 there were 218. 
The figures for the last 12 months are 3,085 cases 
and 216 deaths, while in the preceding 12 months 



the cases numbered 4,663, with 272 deaths, a per- 
centage mortality saving of 20.5%. 

It is disturbing to know that we have had in va- 
rious places contiguous to Chicago a virulent type 
of small pox. Smallpox, however, has been kept un- 
der control, notwithstanding that the disease has 
been repeatedly introduced into the city from other 
places where virulent small pox epidemics existed. 

A close study has been made of the current inci- 
dence of communicable diseases, in order to protect 
from threatening epidemics. Information was 
therefore made available, aiding in the prompt de- 
tection of the source of the oyster-borne typhoid 
fever outbreak of 1924. It is greatly to the credit 
of the City of Chicago that although a number of 
the large cities in the United States were visited 
by epidemics from the same source, the Department 
of Health of Chicago detected the source of tbe 
epidemic and took steps to protect the public sev- 
eral weeks before any of the other cities had dis- 
covered the true cause of the epidemic. 

The number of cases of venereal disease reported 
to the Department of Health for the period under 
discussion is approimately 1,000 in excess of those 
reported during the previous 12 months. It is grati- 
fying to report that of the 2,440' persons referred 
from this department for treatment for venereal dis- 
ease, approximately 40% were found to have been 
volunteers. There were approximately 89,000 visits 
to the various clinics under the control of the Health 
Department which is an increase of 20,000 over the 
12 months previous. At the City Hall clinic, there 
Were approximately 5,400 court cases examined for 
venereal disease, of which 669 were sent to Lawn- 
dale Hospital for treatment. 

Bureau of Child Welfare: 

During the period under discussion important 
changes have occurred in conducting the regular 
work of this bureau. 

1. Beginning with the opening of schools in Sep- 
tember, 1924, a thorough type of physical examina- 
tion was adopted for children in the kindergarten 
and first grade classes in the public and parochial 
schools. The volume of work was reduced but the 
quality was markedly improved. 

2. Another important improvement is the in- 
creased number of corrected physical defects. 

3. The remarkable growth of our infant welfare 
work, as conducted in the 23 infant welfare stations, 
where there was in attendance, for the period under 
discussion, over 106,000 babies. 

4. The adoption of a special activity just placed 
in operation July 1, calling on mothers to impress 
the importance of breast feeding for their babies. 
In this connection, every mother is visited when her 
baby's birth is reported. A birth registration cer- 
tificate is left with the mother and advice given 
on the importance of breast feeding. If the baby is 
not under the care of a doctor or infant welfare 
station, calls are made every 30 days. This program 
has been inaugurated, with no increase in the per- 
sonnel, with the idea in view of lowering the infant 
mortality rate of 76.9 for 1924, which is a substan- 
tial reduction as compared with previous years. 

, 5. The Commissioner of Health, through outside 
financial aid, has been able to prepare a 70-page 
booklet, printed in colors, with 200 illustrations, 
obtaining an initial supply of 350,000 copies, which 
teaches mothers to care for babies up to two years 
of age. This outstanding feature has been accepted

by the Board of Education of Chicago as the official 
text-book in giving the courses to gJ^l^.^^.^^^Xe 
pnth and eighth grades, used as a guide m the l^itue 
Mothers' club courses given in the parochial schoo^ 
accepted by the Associated Press and by leading 
women's magazines. 
Physical Examination: 

A physical examination of 153,671 children over 
one-fourth of the school population, showed that 
aSout 80% of the children were suffering from 
physical defects; 86,257 childen, or over 56% of 
those examined, had trouble with their teeth; 56,- 
854 children, or over 37% of those examined, had 
Sarged or diseased tonsils; 29,921 cildren or over 
59% had defective vision; and 14,893 children, or 
nearly 10% of those examined, had an enlargement 
of the thyroid gland. Divided as to sex, there were 
about 60% girls and 40% boys. 

Chicago as developed in a survey made by Drs. 
Marine and Kimball, is in the endemic goiter district 
of the Great Lakes territory. Goiters, besides bemg 
disfiguring, sometimes give rise to serious and even 
fataf conditions. 

Under-nourishment : 12,993 children, or about nine 
per cent, showed some disturbane of nourishment 
These cases do not fall necessarily among the poorer 
dasses, but occur among children of the better class- 
es because the children are not given the proper kind 
of food, or because of uncorrected physical defects 
do not get the benefit of what they eat. 

Heart disease: 2,349 children, or about one and a 
half per cent, were found to have heart disease,— the 
results of previous infection— diphtheria, scarlet 
fever, bad tonsils, teeth, etc. 

Forty-eight per cent of the children examined had 
the defects corrected. The percentage of correction, 
per defect, was as follows : 

Dental 

Tonsils 35 

Vision per cent 

„ • 5 per cent 

Goiter „ ^ t 

Nutrition « ^^nt 

Heart ^ per cent 

6 In cooperation with the Chicago Woman's Club 
a survey of midwives has been started and almost 
completed. The purpose of this was to get definite 
information as to the class of service and to make 
conditions suitable for mothers and babies. 

HOSPITALS. 

Municipal Contagious Disease Hospital: 

An increased number of patients was cared for the 
total number being 3,570. Ajnong this number there 
were 99 deaths, or a mortality of less than three per 
cent, an extremely low figure for this type of hospital. 
There were approximately 1,600 patients suffering 
from scarlet fever, with a death rate of one per cent. 
There were 821 cases of diptheria, with a death rate 
of 6 5 per cent. Among the 821 diptheria cases, 116 
were of the laryngeal type and 76 required an em- 
ergency operation known as intubation. Among this 
number there were 12 deaths, or a mortality of 15 
per cent. 

Of the 99 deaths which occurred at this hospital 
during the period stated, 24 patients died withm 24 
hours after admission. 

A total of 120 patients was admitted to the Isol- 
ation Hospital for smallpox, with fatal results m 12. 

The ambulance division of the Health Department 
transported over 4,500 patients. 



Iroquois Memorial Hospital: 

This is an accident hospital, and for the period 
under discussion, the approximate average patients 
per month was over 820. Of the total number 
(10 739) of patients received in this hospital, t)<iu 
were hurt or ill and had to be placed m wards. 
Bureau of LaboratoHes and Research: 

During this period considerable progress was made 
in the conducting of research in current health prob- 
lems Under these was the bacteriological study ol 
oysters during the oyster-borne typhiod fever ep- 
idemic of 1924 and 1925 and the study of mcidence 
and types of tubercle bacilli in raw milk, cream and 
butter; the development of taking accurate determ- 
ination of carbon monoxide in air and exhaust gases 
and for detecting the presence of lead m drmkmg 
water. 

In addition to the above major problems the lab- 
oratory has directed and conducted problem work 
in 43 special investigations. 
Bureau of Sanitary Engineering. 

Division of Plumbing and New Buildings: 
Without any increase in the inspection force, the 
number of inspections was very materially increased 
?nThe period from October 1, 1924, to September 30 
1925 compared with the 12 months ending September 
30, 1924, as shown in the following tables:

1925 49,463 2,335 41,329 

1924 32,929 1,646 38.2U/ 
The above figures are actual for the period ending 

in 1924 For 1925 the figures for eleven months 
were taken and the month of September was estim- 
ated. 

Division of Ventilation : 
The routine and general work of the ventilation 
division during the 12 months ending September 30, 

1925 as compared with the previous similar period, 
is shown in the tabulation which follows :

r;ection Enlarged the area covered from 3.2 squar 
miles in 1924 to 49.75 square miles m 1925, an m 
Sease of 46.55 square miles. The total capacities 
of the Vuipment included within this area are 
equivalent to 22,030,000 cubic feet of air per minute. 

Additional studies to determine the degree of air 
pollution resulting from discharges of gases and dus 
have been carried on but not completed. Special 
attention was given to the carbon monoxide nuisance 
fnd the pTSucts of combustion resulting from the 
burning of tetra-ethyl lead. 

Division of Smoke Abatment: 
An increase in the personnel of the smoke abatment 
division, supplemented by the assignment of health 
inspectors from the inspection bureau to watch stacks 
throughout the city, has resulted m a marked re- 
duction of the air pollution by smoke. The volume

of work performed during the past 12 months as 
compared with the previous 12 months is indicated 
by the following tabulation :

Certificates issued 2,209 2,983 

Permits issued 4,867 4,847 

A vigorous enforcement of the smoke ordinance 
has secured the cooperation of the marine interests, 
railroad companies and power and heating plant 
owners in an effort to lessen the discharge of smoke 
from their chimneys; also an investigation to de- 
termine the amount of soot-fall throughout the city 
has been carried on, monthly samples being col- 
lected and analyzed since January 1. 

A large amount of work, involving the recon- 
struction of power and heating plant equipment, has 
been especially noticable during the present year. 
Summer Camps : 

The inspection of summer camps accomodating 
children from Chicago was carried on during the 
year; 59 different camp sites being inspected. 

These camp sites were scattered over the states of 
Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin and Illinois. In this 
work the welfare and health of over 45,000 children 
were safeguarded. A material improvement in the 
equipment and general sanitation of these camps, due 
to this service, has been secured. 

Water Safety Control : 

The cooperative program which has been in force 
for several years between the Department of Health 
and the Department of Public Works, has been con- 
tinued. In accordance with this arrangement, the 
Department of Health recommends the dosage of 
chlorine to be applied for disinfection purposes, and 
the Department of Public Works, through its division 
of pumping station operation, actually applies the 
chemical to the water. The new chlorinators pur- 
chased last year have been installed and are now 
in operation. 

Bureau of Inspection Service: 

The bureau is now in its second year of existence. 

The city is divided into one hundred districts, two 
fo each ward. Each inspector handles the quarantine 
work and miscellaneous inspection in his district,' 
which formerly was handled by three or four classes 
of inspectors going over the same ground. 

All current work is promptly taken care of and the 
Commissioner of Health has, at his disposal at all 
times, a trained force available for special activities 
and emergencies that may arise. 

Since last November the inspectors were directed 
to watch for and report violations of the smoke or- 
dinance. Since that time the inspectors of this 
bureau have reported on about 8,000 violations. 

During the same month, the bureau took over the 
inspection of new buildings for permits and ap- 
pnivcd j)lans. saving technical inspectors consider- 
able time. 

In January, 1925. a canvass was started of 
wearing api)arel siiop.s, laundries. l)arher shops, cos- 
metic or fheraiteutic establishments, and semi- 
iniiiilhly inspect inns nf sausage raclories. 



In March, a weekly inspection of swimming pools 
and food peddling in the vicinity of schools was 
started. 

In 'May, 1925, the bureau began the inspection of 
scavenger wagons for overloading and sanitary con- 
ditions and to see that all such wagons were prop- 
erly covered. 

Also, du'-ing this month, the weekly inspection of 
all lunch stands located at beaches and amusement 
parks was started. 

During the month of June the bureau of food 
inspection turned over the inspection of ice peddling 
to this bureau. 

In July a canvass was started of insanitary drink- 
ing fountains and food vending machines; also a 
systematic canvass was begun of alleys, yards and 
vacant lots for weeds, accumulations of garbage and 
other refuse; stagnant water and mosquito-breeding 
places, and privy vaults. A monthly inspection of 
public water closets was established during July. 

In August, 1025, a canvass of all undertaking estab- 
lishments was started. 

All these activities are in addition to the regular 
quarantine, complaint and food establishment inspec- 
tion work the bureau was doing. 

The following gives an idea as to the volume of 
work handled by this bureau, from October 1 1924 
to September 1, 1925. ' ' 

Sanitary complaints 29,916 

Food complaints 2'o78

Bureau of Food Inspection: 

Milk and Dairy Inspection. 

The bureau of food inspection maintained inspec- 
tion on approximately 25,000 dairy farms during the 
period, having had in the field six dairy inspectors 
covering this work. Since last year, many of the 
milk distributors have procured their supply from 
points not heretofore inspected by the dairy inspec- 
tion force; hence it was necessary to assign men to 
these distant points, in central Wisconsin and Mich- 
igan principally, to inspect the source of supply and 
methods in use by the producers, with the result 
that satisfactory cooperation was given the Depart- 
ment of Health, or the milk supply from these sources 
was refused entrance to Chicago. 

Close supervision was maintained of the automo- 
bile trucks supplying milk to Chicago, and the re- 
quirement that the automobile trucks be enclosed by 
a permanent top and sides was adhered to. 

Seven thousand three hundred gallons of milk 
were refused entrance to Chicago and returned to 
shippers, because of a higher temperature than that 
permitted by the ordinance, and for being unclean. 

During the year a poultry epidemic swept over 
the country. An embargo was placed on shipments ' 
from nine companies in Indiana. Close attention 
was given to carload shipments of poultry reaching 
Chicago and, through the cooperation of the United 
States goverment and the state of Illinois, all sus- 
pected slii|)ments of poultry were refused entrance 
to the city. Disinfection of cars and containers was 
enforced. 

Food veiuiing machines were investigated and it 
was I'ouiul that many of them were not properly con- 
si I'liclcd From a sanilary slandpoinl. Ai'rangements

introduce this method of treatment in this section of 
the country. Further studies are being conducted 
and greater things hoped for. 

The results of this work were presented at the 
recent meeting of the National Tuberculosis Asso- 
ciation held in Minneapolis and much favorable 
comment was made by men eminent in tuberculosis 
work. Many other scientific papers were contributed 
by the medical staff before various, other medical 
societies. 

The Consulting Staff appointed in 1924 has been 
of invaluable assistance to us. Many patients, whose 
complications no doubt would have gone on causing 
untold suffering and invalidism, were benefited. 

Laboratory : 

The following activities were carried on in this 
Department during the period of this report: 

This last year witnessed the final work on the 
laboratory in the way of construction, equipment and 
organization of the staff. The different new depart- 
ments that were described in the proceeding report 
have become definite functioning units and the clinic- 
al laboratory is now one of the most complete in the 
country. 

Research work has occupied most cf the time of 
the senior members of the Laboratory staff. A large 
number of organic and inorganic chemicals were 
prepared and put through the preliminary trials for 
a chemo-therapeutic agent, with varied results. 
There are excellent prospects for success and this 
work will be continued. 

The Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium has the 
distinction of being the first institution in America 
to investigate and report on the new "Gold Cure" in 
tuberculosis. This work was reported at the last 
meeting of the National Tuberculosis Association in 
-Minneapolis. Although we did not find the gold cure 
as promising as it was first represented to be, it was 
found that there is hope for its use in a more limited 
way. 

Dispensary Bureau : 

The Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium maintains 
eight free tuberculosis dispensaries. There are 22 
physicians (10 full time and 12 part time), one 
Consulting Orthopedic Surgeon and 138 full time 
graduate nurses on the Dispensary Staff. 

On September 1st, 1925 there was 28,632 patients 
under the supervision of the dispensaries — 9,160 
adults and 19,472 children. Of this number 2,243 
wore open cases. 31,142 new patients were examined 
of whom 4,569 were diagnosed tuberculosis and 
24,009 non-tuberculosis. Patient's visits to clinics 
for treatment totaled 179,545. 

The Dispensary Physicians examined 1,810 pa- 
tients in their homes (patients who were unable to 
go to the Dispensary), of whom 336 were diagnosed 
tuberculosis and 80 were placed under observation. 
219,601 home visits were made by the field nurses, 
who give bedside care to all cases needing such at- 
tention. A total of 3,369 baths, 5,518 dressings, 388 
partial baths and 268 special treatments were given 
by them. 

During the period of this report 847 open cases of 
tuberculosis were hospitalizfd and and 2,118 new 
open cases of puhnf)nary tuberculosis were regist- 
ered with the dispensaries. 8,019 new cases of tuber- 
culosis and 2,443 deaths from tuberculosis were re- 
ported. 

Ten dentists are employed in the dispensary de- 



partment for part-time service, being on duty daily 
from 9 A. M. to 1 P. M. In the dispensary clinics 
free dental services are given to tuberculosis pa- 
tients who are unable to pay for a private dentist. 
During Jthe period of September 1st, 1924 to August 
31st, 1925, 42,751 patients were treated. 

The Sanitarium furnishes a pint and a half of milk 
daily to each of approximately 1,560 children in the 
52 open ivindow rooms conducted in 26 of the Chi- 
cago Public Schools. The Sanitarium also furnishes 
the medical and nursing supervision of the children 
in these rooms. 

A central X-Ray Laboratory was opened April 13th, 
1925, in the Ashland Avenue Dispensary for the 
X-Ray and fluoroscopic examination of patients sent 
there by the dispensary physicians and those referred 
by some private physicians. 

During the past year an Orthopedic, Clinic has been 
conducted at the Grand Crossing Dispensary. 252 
crippled patients have received treatment at this 
clinic, 47 being referred for casts and 37 for hospital 
treatment. The Sanitarium also furnishes medical 
and nursing service to the Spalding School for 
Crippled Children. 

A house to house survey as a preliminary to a 
city-wide survey was made in the Stock Yards and 
Grand Crossing Dispensary districts beginning July 
1st. During July and August the nurses made 4,240 
calls in the district, referring 71 cases to the dis- 
pensary physicians for examination. Of these 11 
were found to be tuberculosis and 14 were placed 
under observation. Only 4 of the patients referred 
refused to be examined. 702 cases were referred to 
other clinics for diagnosis and treatment. 

A health survey was made at the Scanlan School 
to determine the physical condition of children at- 
tending this school. 1,416 children were given a 
preliminary examination, a complete physical exam- 
ination six months later and about a year follow- 
ing a reinspection examination. 

Beginning with the month of November, 1924, a 
m.onthly bulletin has been issued and mailed to a list 
of about 15,000 people. It has for its purpose the 
education of the public in tuberculosis problems; 
i. e. the prevention, detection and treatment of the 
disease. It is mainly through the medium of this 
bulletin that the medical profession is also informed 
as to the activities of the Sanitarium and its dis- 
pensaries. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. 

Both the Bureau of Employment and the Bureau 
of Social Surveys have functioned actively during 
the past year, although operations have been cur- 
tailed by restriction of funds. 

The Men's Service Station at No. 162 North Union 
avenue was open for 9 months, but was forced to 
close for 3 months for lack of operating funds. 
During this time the station furnished 23,823 baths, 
provided for the washing of the clothes of 11,971 
men, and rendered upwards of 5,000 other services. 
To the United States-Illinois Free Employment 
Offices thanks are due for co-operating in offering 
employment to 1,768 men. 

The Municipal Lodging House was open from De- 
cember 30, 1924, to April 7, 1925. During this time 
17,025 lodgings and 16,201 breakfasts were supplied. 

Comprehensive investigations as to living condi- 
tions, rents and lack of milk and ice among the poor 
have been completed during the year. The depart-

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



October 28, 1925. 



ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS. 

From January 1, 1925, until October 1, 1925, the 
Board of Appeals has heard and passed upon 561 
cases and 23 rehearings. 

The following- schedule shows the nature of the 
decisions arrived at by the board on the cases under 
consideration since the first of the year: 

Granted 181 

Granted on condition 146 

Denied 154 

Modified 9 

Dismissed 19 

Withdrawn 30 

Granted temporarily 5 

Partly granted and partly denied 8 

Pending 9 

561 

Rehearings. 

Granted 16 

Denied 7 

This is an increase of 199 cases and 9 rehearings 
over a corresponding period of last year. 

DEPARTMENT OF GAS AND ELECTRICITY. 

In the past 12 months there has been cut into 
service approximately 7,500 new electric lights, the 
majority of which were installed in the outlying 
wards. Construction work is rapidly nearing comple- 
tion on 9,000 more lights, all of which should be cut 
into service by the first of the year. This work is 
being financed by means of Bond Issue Funds. Upon 
the completion of this work there will be lighted 
some 25 square miles of territory, and the city is 
now nearer to keeping abreast of its natural growth, 
and coincident street lighting extension than ever 
before in its history. 

Fire Alarm Protection: 

There has been installed throughout the city in 
the past year about 140 fire alarm boxes at very 
needy locations. This is the largest addition in the 
way of fire alarm equipment that was made to the 
existing system in any one year for the past 25 
years. 

Automatic Traffic Control Equipment: 

Plans and specifications have been prepared and 
money made available for the installatino of auto- 
matic traffic control equipment in the Loop district 
and at 90 locations in the outlying districts. Work 
is now well under way, all underground work and 
cable work in the Loop has been completed, and it is 
anticipated that at our present rate of progress in- 
stallation of all this equipment will be completed by 
December 31, 1925. 

The department during the past year has replaced 
over 2,000 defective poles, thereby removing a very 
serious menace to the public. 

The department has been completely motorized 
with first class equipment which has resulted in 
greatly improved service. 

DEPARTMENT OF WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. 

An increase of 10,063 pieces of apparatus tested 
and an increase of 606 pieces condemned is noted 
by this department for the period from October 1 
1924, to September 30, 1925, which is comparable to 
the preceding year's work. Fees collected increased 
$4,631.50. 300 more prosecutions for ordinance vio- 
ation were brought during the year just past than 
the previous your. 



DEPARTMENT FOR THE INSPECTION OF STEAM BOILERS, 
STEAM AND COOLING PLANTS. 

The following tabulation shows the number of in- 
spections and installations and fees charged therefor 
under the supervision of the department from Octo- 
ber 1, 1924, to September 30, 1925, inclusive: 

High pressure boilers inspected.. 6,978 

Low pressure boilers inspected 7,246 

Tanks, kettles, etc., inspected 5,402 

Cooling units inspected 2,077 

Total inspections 21,703 

Number of permits issued for new in- 
stallations 2 051 

Number of new high pressure boilers 
installed 410 

Number of new low pressure boilers 
installed 1,489 

Number of new tanks, kettles, etc., in- 
stalled 236 

Number of new cooling units in- 
stalled 187 

Total new installations 2,322 

Amount of fees for boiler 

and tank inspections $85,039.00 

Amount of fees for cooling 

unit inspections 11,940.00 

Amount of fees for permits, 

new installations 10,905.00 

Total fees charges $107,884.00 

During the period covered by this report, there 
has not been any loss of life or serious property 
damage attributable to boiler explosions. 

INSPECTOR OF OILS. 

The receipts of this department for the inspection 
of 4,261,883 barrels of oil totaled $225,712.98, $18,- 
310.50 more than was received during a correspond- 
ing period the year before. The operating expense 
of this department is $18,524.79. 

CITY COLLECTOR. 

The method of collecting license and permit fees 
inaugurated by this administration has been so per- 
fected that, except in the case of a few classes of 
licenses or where new places are opened, the great 
proportion of the work is handled by mail, thus re- 
lieving the office of the intolerable congestion which 
formerly existed during the busy periods. 

The following figures show collections for licenses 
and permits during the periods mentioned opposite 
same : 

12 months, ending Dec. 31, 1924 $3,702,847.46 

9 months, ending Sept. 30, 1925 3,269,267.15 

Vehicle Tax Division: 

As reflected in the increased number of vehicles 
operated on our streets, there was a material in- 
crease of vehicle tax collections. Total wheel tax 
collections for the year 1925 will be approximately 
$3,900,000.00. 

Warrants for Collection Division: 

Collections under warrants show somewhat of a 
decrease because of the loss in collection of fees for 
electrical inspection. This was due to a Supreme 
Court ruling denying the City's right under the prior 
law to collect a fee for such inspections. Since the 
new law was enacted some payments have been made 
but another suit has been instituted attacking its

CO'MiMUNIGATIONS, ETC.

constitutionality. Pending a fmal hearing of this 
case payments are largely withheld. 

Other collections under this divisoin show an im- 
provement. Deposits received are greater for 9 
moS this year than all of last year. The same ap- 
plies to sundry funds. Miscellaneous collections are 
about on a par with last year. 

Ordinance revenues from street railways fell off 
a half million dollars. The audit showed that there 
was an increase in gross revenues, but, due to an 
increase in operating expenses, the net was less. 

Following is shown comparative collections for 
both years :

Street Railway Revenue 1,608,507.41 2,117,215.26 

Special Assessment Division: 

Special assessment collections have been much 
ffreater this year than last, occasioned through the 
Srge levies to cover the South Water street im- 
provement, the widening of 22nd ^trft. North Clark 
street, Ashland avenue, etc. In spite of the addi- 
• tional work thus entailed such collections were han- 
dled promptly by the regular staff of employes. 

DEPARTMENT OF COMPENSATION. 

Revenue derived for the City from the use of 
streets and alleys for switch tracks, canopies 
bridges, tunnels, vaults, loading platforms, etc. and 
for the vacation of parts of streets and alleys, 
amounts to about $800,000.00 each year. 

Surveys have been made which found the railroad 
companies in occupation of a great number of un- 
used portions of streets and alleys for which they 
were paying the City no compensation. This de- 
partment co-operated closely with your Committee 
on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys m the prep- 
aration of the ordinance passed July 15th ot tnis 
year, vacating and dedicating certain streets and 
alleys and opening up important new thoroughfares 
in the southwest section of the city, such as West 
38th street, Crawford and Cicero avenues. These 
openings will be accomplished by means of subways 
and viaducts which will be built at the sole expense 
of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Com- 
pany In addition, the company has paid the City 
the sum of $477,687.16. 

After considerable controversy the Chicago, Bur- 
lington & Quincy Railroad Co. has agreed to pay the 
City for the portions of streets and alleys m occu- 
pation along its right of way and ordinances have 
already been drawn for such vacations. 

This department is aiming to make all of railroad 
and other corporations and individuals using public 
space pay adequate compensation for the same. An 
inspection force has been added to this department 
this year which is carefully checking up all such 
uses. 

LICENSE DEPARTMENT. 

The activities of the License Department have 
been seriously affected because of the fact that of 
approximately 110 General Licensing Ordinances, 21 
can not be fully enforced due to pending litigation 
Included in this number are some ordinances that 
have heretofore yielded a considerable revenue. 



Nevertheless, the records show a greater number 
of General Licenses collected this year than during 
the corresponding period in 1924. The receipts from 
General Licenses total within $10,000.00 of the 
amount collected in 1924, while the receipts from 
Vehicle Licenses are $323,077.00 in excess of last 
year at this time.

DEPARTMENT OP SUPPLIES. 

The total expenditure of $1,983,030.00 for depart- 
mental requirements incurred by the Department ot 
Supplies for the first nine months of 1925 very close- 
ly equals the record volume of purchases established 
last year. This sum total is made up of 34,790 
orders. 

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION. 

The number of persons in the classified Civil 
Service December 31, 1924, was 35,917 in which are 
included employes of the Board of Education, the 
Chicago Public Library, the Municipal Tuberculosis 
Sanitarium and the House of Correction. There were 
also employed 933 persons exempt from the operation 
of the Civil Service Act, making a total of 36,850 
employees checked bi-monthly in this office on the 
CUv's pay-roll. On September 15, 1925, the number 
S employees in the Public Service of the City was 
38 050 Of these persons, 37,117 were m the classi- 
fied serivce and 933 were in the Exempt Division, 
which last number are included employees of the 
Municipal Court Clerk, Municipal Court Bailiff and 
the Law Department of the City of Chicago. 

During the period covered by this Report, 218 
examinationes were held, in which a total of 6,233 
persons were examined in the competitive employ- 
ments and 8,295 in the non-competitive oj the un- 
skilled labor service, making a total of 14,528 per- 
sons examined during the year. The Commission 
conducted examinations for many positions m the 
higher grades of the Official Service, Uidmg Civil 
Service Secretary and Chief Examiner, Medical Sup- 
erintendent, Superintendent of Social Surveys, Super-

The Commission has been fortunate in obtaining, 
when the necessity arose, the services of private 
citizens acting in the capacity of special examiners 
who were especially qualified to conduct tests for 
certain technical and professional positions in the 
public service. 

Physical standards have been prepared with the 
purpose of excluding from the service candidates 
who are unfitted to perform the duties of the posi- 
tions they seek. The number of persons examined 
medically and physically was 4,538. Of these per- 
sons -examined 1,389 were rejected as unable to 
perform the duties of the position for which ap- 
plication has been made.

MUNICIPAL REFERENCE LIBRARY. 

The Municipal Reference Library on October 1, 
1924 contained 101,045 books and pamphlets. There 
were added to the Library during the twelve months 
period from October 1, 1924 to September 30, 1925 
5,350 books and pamphlets. The total number oi 
books and pamphlets on file on September 30, 1925 
was 106,395. There are received regularly the cur- 
rent proceedings of the city councils or boards of 
aldermen of 42 large cities, 272 general publications 
of a periodical nature, and 165 magazines on health 
and sanitation. Practically the entire collection of 
books and pamphlets, as well as periodical literature, 
on file in the Municipal Reference Library relates 
to municipal government, municipal problems, and 
municipal administration and legislation. 

During the 12 months period indicated above the 
Municipal Reference Library had 15,969 visitors, and 
5.420 requests on the telephone for information. The 
Library distributed free 13,948 municipal documents 
— mainly consisting of duplicate annual and special 
reports of municipal departments and bureaus — by 
mail and to citizens and residents personally apply- 
ing in the quarters of the Library. Twelve thousand, 
one hundred ninety-eight (12,198) books and pamph- 
lel.s were used for reference purposes at the reading 
tables in the Library by city officials, city employes, 
and the general public, as well as loaned to such 
officials and employes for purposes of reference, per- 
usal, study and investigation. 

Eight hundred thirty-five requests were received 
from members of the City Council, its various com- 
Hiilteos and sub-committees and special commissions, 
including requests from the staffs of the Committee 
on Finance and Local Transportation. Fifteen hun- 
dred fifty-nine requests were received from 31 mun- 
icipal departments, boards and commissions, includ- 
ing the bureaus anrl divisions of the latter; 172 re- 
quests from various departments of the County, San- 



itary and park districts, and United States Govern- 
ment, and 3,637 requests from miscellaneous sources. 

Since the first of the year, the library in the 
Health Department has been conducted and operated 
as a branch or division of the Municipal Reference 

^^^^L .P*^ transfer was effected at the suggestion 
and with the consent of the Commissioner of Health 
Under this transfer the Municipal Reference Library 
IS charged with the care of the medical books and 
periodicals, maintaining the files and proper records 
of current magazines, and responding to requests 
lor information made upon the Library by officials 
physicians, nurses, ahd other employes of the Health 
Department. All of the ordering and cataloging for 
the Public Health Division will be performed in the 
Municipal Reference Library, subject to suggestions 
and recommendations which may be made by the 
Commissioner of Health, heads of bureaus, and other 
officials and employes of the Department of Health 
It IS behved that the unified control and supervision 
effected by the transfer will prove of benefit to both 
the Municipal Reference Library and the Health De- 
partment. 

During the past 12 months, a new edition of the 
Zoning Ordinance of the City of Chicago, with amend- 
ments up to and including July 1, 1924, prepared by 
the Board of Zoning Appeals, was turned over to the 
Library and placed on sale at the cost price of fifty 
«Q'^rnP^^u'^°P/- the past year the sum of 

*3,6o0.00 has been realized from the sale of municipal 
codes, ordinances, and other documents and publica- 
tions which have been placed on sale in the Library 
By way of contrast, it may be of interest to recall* 
that the total revenue derived from the sale of these 
publications during the 12 months period ending 
September 30, 1024 was $1,895.55, showing an in- 
crease m revenue of $1,754.45 during the year just 
closed. 

An edition of 2,000 copies of the Sanitary Code 
containing all amendments and additions up to and 
including July 15, 1925, has been printed and placed 
on sale m the Library at the cost price of publication 
The Sanitary Code has been unavailable for distri- 
bution or sale by the city government for a number 
of years. The new edition is meeting a long-felt 
public want. 

A map has been prepared showing the distribution 
of population in Chicago by square mile sections in 
the years 1920, 1916, 1912, 1910, 1908 and 1900. This 
study of the shift of Chicago's population is of value 
to the Committee on Local Transportation in its 
study of the transportation problem of this City, also 
to the Health Department the Bureau of Engineering, 
the public schools, and to other city departments, as 
well as to civic agencies and business and industrial 
interests. 

A survey (requested by the Mayor) is being made 
of public opportunities and facilities for leisure time 
recreation, amusement and instruction provided in 
large cities for their residents, particularly adults 
and- adolescents of both sexes. The surviy will re- 
veal facilities for leisure time and civic recreation 
maintained under municipal or other public auspices 
in American cities, especially in relation to the fol- 
lowing forms of public amusement, recreation or 
instruction : 

1. Music, bands, orchestras. 

2. Symphony and other concerts, choral classes 
and community singing. 

3. Drama, opera, indoor and outdoor theatres. 

4. Art gallaries and museums. 

5. Moving picture shows and lectures.

6. Folk dancing, social dancing. 

7. Civic and social entertainments and meetings, 

8. Indoor and outdoor games. 

9. Swimming pools, floating baths, bathing 
beaches. 

10. Athletics, gymnasiums, skating rinks. 

11. Forest and park camping. 

12. Pool and billiard tables and bowling alleys. 

13. Baseball fields, boxing and wrestling contests. 

14. Other public neighborhood and community 
recreation. 

The Library is assembling for the use of the Chi- 
cago and Cook County Citizens' Committee for Popular 
Representation— to devise ways and means and pre- 
pare plans and proposals for representation upon 
the basis of population in the General Assembly of 
the State of Illinois— data showing the discrimina- 
tion against the population not only of Chicago but of 
the urban communities of the state in general and 
their representation in the Legislature. Similarly, 
it is obtaining information comparing and contrast- 
ing the amount of taxes collected and the revenue 
derived from Cook County for State purposes with 
similar taxes colledted and revenues received from 
other counties and senatorial districts in the State 
of Illinois. 

In previous reports I have in general terms ex- 
pressed my appreciation of the co-operation of the 
City Council. There have been so many measures 
of outstanding importance to the community con- 
sidered and passed by your Honorable Body durmg 
the past year that a more particular statement is 
clearly due. 

The mere statement of the most important matters 
which have been considered during the past year by 
your Honorable Body,— your painstaking etlort and 
thorough study given to the traction question, to 
the subject of river straightening and railway term- 
inals, to the conservation of life and property and 
the serving of public convenience through extensive 
track elevation, the development of Lake Calumet 
Harbor, the scientific meterization and necessary con- 
servation of the City's water supply, the widening 
of existing inadequate streets and the provision of 
new thoroughfares opening vast new areas for de- 
velopment, the further extension of our transporta- 
tion facilities,— these and many other matters of only 
relatively lesser importance suggest that through 
your co-operation more has been accomplished dur- 
ing the last year than in any other corresponding 
period of the City's history. For this invaluable 
co-operation and assistance you have my most sin- 
cere thanks. 

Respectfully submitted,

proclamation. 

October 27th of this year marks the one hundred 
and fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the 
United States Navy. In commemoration of the day 
on which the naval auxiliary was created to aid in 
our Nation's defenses, a "Navy Day" has recently 
been inaugurated when Americans should pause 
and reflect with national pride upon its inspiring 
achievements so nobly accomplished since the year 
1775. 

Accordingly, I, William E. Dever, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do proclaim October 27th as a day 
upon which our citizens should, with reverence, 
honor their Navy by extolling its achievements and 
by such other manifestation of recognition and ob- 
servance that such an occasion commands, par- 
ticularly upon a sesquicentennial anniversary. 

I respectfully urge that flags be displayed upon 
all public buildings on this day.

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Local 
Transportation: 

Post Office Department, | 
Chicago, August 14, 1925.} 

Mr. Al. F. Gorman, City Clerk of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — Having as part of duties the investi- 
gation of accidents between Government mail trucks 
and other vehicles in the streets of Chicago, I wish 
to say in sincere appreciation that for ready refer- 
ence and concise information I have found nothing 
to equal or come within a mile of your "Complete 
Digest of Traffic Regulations Governing Motor 
Vehicles," published in December, 1923, [compiled 
by Edward J. Padden, Chief Clerk]. If you can 
spare two or three more copies and will forward 
them in the enclosed envelope, which requires no 
postage for the purpose, I shall be greatly obliged 
to you. 

If you could get an ordinance passed requiring 
vehicle drivers to give three distinct toots before 
backing in the street, a horn signal before turning 
at places other than cross intersections; and could 
have more strictly enforced the rule for giving hand 
signal before turning out from curbs into traffic, 
you would greatly reduce the troubles which I 
find to be the most prevalent. 

Very sincerely, 

(Signed) Robert H. Barclay, 

Inspector.

JOURNAI^CITY COUNCIL. 



October 28, 1925. 



The conditions complained of could hardly be 
termed "a neighborhood nuisance" in its broadest 
sense, but they are, no doubt, annoying to indi- 
viduals located near by. This factory is adjacent 
to the C. B. & Q. tracks and in a district that is 
zoned for industrial purposes.

Department op Law,] 
Chicago, October 13, 1925.] 

To the Ronorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On June 3rd last your Honorable 
Body directed the Corporation Counsel and the 
Zoning Commission to take steps to eliminate the 
nuisance by the radio station known as WKSB at 
No. 4536 Woodlawn avenue. Because of the grow- 
ing importance of this subject and because it has 
never before been comprehensively considered by 
the Law Department, we have deemed it justifiable 
to make a rather exhaustive examination of the 
authorities. 

We find numerous decisions of the courts that 
such noises as are described in the resolution and 
similar ones are nuisances at the suit of the dis- 
turbed persons. 

Radio Broadcasting as a Nuisance. 

The only case to be found in the books as yet in 
which an injunction was issued against the opera- 
tion of a talking machine is that of 

Stodder et al. vs. Rosen Talking Machine Co 
(Mass. Sup. Ct. Apr. 14, 1922) 
Vol. 22 A. L. R. Ann., 1197, 

where it was held that 

"(1) Injunction lies in favor of neighboring 
merchants against the continuous operation during 
business hours by a music dealer of a talking ma- 
chine in such manner as to make concentration on 
work difTicult, irritate the nervous system, injure 
health, and interfere with the conduct of business, 
while the machine might be played in such man- 
ner that its ofTectiveness for advertising purposes 
would not be affected and it would not interfere 
with the business or comfort of complainants." 

Of the findings of the Master, the Court said: 

"The machine complained of produced a tone 
slightly louder than that made by others of the 
the same general type; and the defendant made 
use of the loud or 'full-tone' needle, and no 
mufiling device. The machine was played sub- 
stantially all day, from 10 A. M. until 5 P. M. 
or later, except during cold winter and stormy 
weather. The records consisted of every variety 
— singing, speaking and instrumental— and the 
music or 'noise' was plainly au(li))Ie in all parts 



of the premises occupied by the plaintiffs. The 
continuous and monotonous playing of piece after 
piece according to his findings, 'did injuriously 
affect the employes of the plaintiffs by a gradual 
wear on their nervous systems, and in some in- 
stances producing headaches, in other instances 
making it most difficult for the person to con- 
centrate on his or her particular work, and in 
other instances getting the person in a con- 
dition such as is generally described 'with nerves 
on edge.' Further, he finds that the noise of the 
defendant's phonograph is a substantial addi- 
tion to all the other noises absolutely incident to 
the street; that is, it tends to reduce and di- 
minish the efficiency of the petitioners and their 
employes by reason of the fact that their minds 
and also the minds of customers are often di- 
verted, and is the cause of some harm and injury 
to the health and comfort of ordinary persons, 
and does to some extent interfere with the con- 
duct and business of the petitioner Stodder, and 
to a smaller degree interfere with the progress 
of the business of the petitioner Hurwitz. Fin- 
ally, he finds that, if the machine were played in 
such a manner that it could not be heard in the 
places of business of the plaintiffs it would have 
practically all of its present advertising value; 
and that the injury or discomfort caused them 
and their employes is 'out of proportion to the 
advantage accruing to the respondent in the play- 
ing of the machine as it is played, over what would 
accrue to it if it were played in such a way that 
it could not be heard, or appreciably heard, in 
the petitioner's place of business.' " 

"On the facts found by the master it is clear 
that the decree for an injunction and damages 
was warranted. Stevens vs. Rockport Granite Co. 
216 Mass. 486, 104 N. E. 371, Ann. Cas. 1915B, 
1054, Davis vs. Sawyer, 236 Mass, 350, 128 N. E. 
406. And we see no necessity for modifying the 
terms of the decree by omitting the word 'ap- 
preciably,' as urged by the plaintiffs." 

In a note the editor says this is apparently the 
only case in which the question of whether a talk- 
ing machine constitutes such a nuisance as would 
be restrained. The note cites Grantham vs. Gibson 
in the Supreme Court of Washington, where an 
injunction issued against the operation of two 
musical instruments known as a "tonophone" and 
an "orchestrion" played in a shooting gallery in a 
building which was used for a hotel by complain- 
ant. 

Other kinds of noises against which injunctions 
have issued are as follows: 

Phelps vs. Winch, 309 111. 158, holding: 

"The operation of an amusement pavilion at a 
place devoted to summer collages, from 8 in 
the morning until 11 or 12 at night, with box- 
ball alleys and dancing to jazz music in such 
manner that the noises from the music, the 
laughter, applause, and announcements on the 
dance fioor, and the noise and lights from the 
automobiles as the guests depart, interfered with 
ordinary conversation, and disturbed the rest 
and sleep in neighboring homes, and would affect 
the ordinary physical comfort of ordinary per- 
sons and was a nuisance." 

The court reviews a number of cases. (Justice 
Thompson dissenting: No Op). 

In Gilbough vs. West Side Amusement Co., 64 
N. J. Eq. 27, the court said: 



October 28, 1925. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

"That mere noise may be so great at certain 
times and under certain circumstances as to 
amount to an actionable nuisance and entitle the 
party subjected to it to the preventive remedy 
of the court of equity is thoroughly established. 
The reason why a certain amount of noise is or 
may be a nuisance is that it is not only dis- 
agreeable, but it also wears upon the nervous 
system, and produces that feeling which we call 
'tired' That the subjection of a human being 
to a continued hearing of loud noises tends to 
shorten life is, I think, beyond all doubt. An- 
other reason is that mankind needs rest and 
sleep, and noise tends to prevent both." 
In Kobielski vs. Bell Isle East Side Creamery Co. 
222 Mich. 565, the Court said: 

"The number of people concerned by the noise, 
and the magnitude of the industry complained of, 
are both elements entitled to consideration m 
reaching a conclusion as to the fact. And, again, 
the time at which noises are made is an ele- 
ment to be considered in determining whether 
a noise constitutes an actionable nuisance. A 
noise incident to the operation of machinery 
during the day may not be a nuisance, while the 
same noise during the usual sleeping hours 
of the night would con titute a nuisance. 
And noises made on Sunday may constitute a 
nuisance, though they would not have been such 
if made on a week day, 20 R. C. L. 445." 

"In the case of Reilley vs. Curley, 75 N. J. Eq. 
57 138 Am. St. Rep. 510, 71 Atl. 700, it is said: 
'The next question is whether noise alone may 
constitute such a nuisance as to subject the one 
creating the same to restraint m equity. That 
such is the case I am convinced from the au- 
thorites, not only in our state,, but in many other 
jurisdictions. Of the noise, and the time and 
duration of its occurrence, and the place where 
it occurs, and the surroundings thereof, are the 
important and determinative features.' " 
"In Spelling on Injunctions, Sec. 341, it is said: 

'Noises which tend to disturb rest and quiet 
in the neighborhood may be restrained. * 
To warrant an injunction against a noise _ as a 
nuisance, it must be shown that the noise is 
such as to produce actual physical discomfort to 
a person of ordinary sensibilities,^ and is unrea- 
sonably and unnecessarily made.'" 
That the station is licensed by the federal gov- 
ernment will not prevent its regulation by the 
local police authority. The regulation of the De- 
partment of Commerce concerning the use ot radio 
apparatus contains the following paragraph: 

"63-Par 1^1 The department recognizes that 
radio communication offers a wholesome form of 
instructive recreation for amateurs. At the same 
time its use for this purpose must observe stnct- 
Iv the rights of others to the uninterrupted use 
of apparatus for important public and cornmer- 
cial purposes. The department will not know- 
ingly issue a license to an amateur who does not 
recognize and will not obey this principle. 
Illustrations of this local regulation are the coii 
trol by municipalities of the means and methods 
o?na7igation in a harbor or a river as a highway 
of commerce within its jurisdiction m so ^r as 
such regulations conflict with no rule established 
by Confess for such navigation, and also municipal 
rIgulatSn of the speed of interstate trams are m- 
stances of the exercise of local authority The 
Supreme Court of the United States has so decided 
many times.

The city is presumed to have full knowledge of 
local conditions, and its determination of the rea- 
sonableness of the specific requirements m the light 
of this knowledge is prima facie valid. 

If the radio station is to be considered as a 
public service business, police regulations will be 
recognized. This is said by the Pennsylvania Su- 
preme Court of the power of the State or mu- 
nicipalities over public service companies. 

Kittanning vs. Nat. Gas Co., 239 Pa. 210,212. 

In WilUams vs. Chicago, 266 111. 267, the Court 
said : 

"It has always been supposed that sufficient 
authority has been delegated cities to provide all 
reasonable regulations for the Protection of the 
public health, morals, or safety, and private rights 
are subject to this exercise of the police power. 
The General Police Power of the City. 

The Legislature of Illinois has passed no laws 
for the regulation of radio communication and has 
delegated no authority to the City by direct legis- 
lation. 

The subjects of the police power include the pub- 
lic health, morals, safety, order, convenience and 
general welfare and prosperity.

The Charter Power Over Amusements. 

In the case of Nahser vs. City of Chicago 271 

TU the Supreme Court, on page 291, m discussing 

fhe poter of the City Council to regulate places of 

amusement, said: 

"Clause 41 gave cities .I'^^'^^'^H 
i.ori tn dn the things purported to be authorizea 
Sy'sa d clause, subject to no limitations except 
those imposed by the constitution upon the Leg- 
islature." 

And in citing this case in an 0?^^^°^^ 
14 1918, (Vol. 2, 729) this department held. 

"Clause 41 does not limit the power of the 
councU to license and regulate only places of 
amusement where an admiss on fee is charged, 
h,it confers upon the council power to icense, 
?ax and regulate theatricals and other exhibitions 
and shows wherever given." 

In the absence of federal and state legislation 
the cl arterprovisions giving the city the power to 
iegu ate amusements within its jurisdiction might 
very reasonably be invoked as a^^^^ority for re- 
nuirin- the reasonable exercise of the privilege 
oT b oadcastmg music, singing and a t endant noises

and the orchestra music and concert smgmg at late

in many instances and been sustained therin by the 
courts. Among these are: Requiring mufflers on 
automobiles; building noises at night in residential 
districts; the calling of wares except under cer- 
tain conditions; prohibiting the blowing of cal- 
liopes on steamboats and wharves; mechanical de- 
vices for advertising goods in streets, steam whistles 
and the playing of hand organs. 

Our opinion therefore is that the City has ample 
authority to require the proper operation of a 
station with reference to the health and comfort of 
the inhabitants of the vicinity of its location. 

Specifically, it is clearly within the power of your 
Honorable body to pass an ordinance prohibiting 
the broadcasting of singing or instrumental music 
m residential districts after midnight or such late 
hour as you may determine upon. Solely for your 
convenience in such consideration we have pre- 
pared a draft of such an ordinance and submit 
same herewith.

Licensing and Regulation of Dealers in Junk. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, which was, together with an ordinance trans- 
mitted therewith, referred to the Committee on Ju- 
diciary: 

Department op Law,] 
Chicago, October, 27, 1925. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On October 8, 1925, the Supreme 
Court denied the petition for rehearing in the case 
of I^eisner v. City of Chicago, involving the validity 
of the junk ordinances of the city. It had decided 
that, by reason of the passage of an ordinance for 
the reclamation of waste materials which was after- 
wards repealed, there was also a repeal by implica- 
tion of the original junk ordinance. 

This leaves the city without any ordinance either 
regulating or licensing or controling the location of 
junk dealers, or junk shops or yards, or junk ped- 
lers, wagons or boats. A junk store, or junk shop 
or yard may be located at any place that it is not 
prohibited from occupying under the zoning ordin- 
ance. This, of course, opens up many locations 
which, until this decision was rendered, were be- 
leived to be restricted against such an occupation. 
It also deprives the city of a considerable sum an- 
nually m license fees which are authorized by the 
Cities and AMllages Act and could be collected if a 
proper ordinance was enforced. 

There are also a large number of regulatory pro- 
visions that are wiped out by the same decision 
This, from the standpoint of the Law Department 
may be regarded as unfortunate, because this bus- 
iness is one that requires regulation. 

Believing that it is the desire of Your Honorable 
Body to remedy this situation without delay, we have 
prepared a new ordinance designed to take the place 
of the one that has been held to be repealed by im- 
plication. Wo have made a number of changes in 
this ordinance in the hope that we will overcome 



the objections that have been urged to the former 
ordinance. In the main, however, we follow that 
ordinance with the one exception that we have pro- 
vided for a new classification, that of junk peddlers. 

Heretofore junk peddlers were either employed by 
retail junk dealers or they secured peddlers' licenses. 
In any event, they did not pay a junk dealer's license, 
and it would have been a great hardship on them if 
they had been compelled to secure junk dealers' 
licenses. The reason for that was that under a strict 
construction of the ordinance as it appeared in the 
code, they would have been compelled to pay $200 
for a dealer's license, and in addition a license fee 
of $15 for the wagon. Most of these junk peddlers 
are unable to raise such an amount of money. This 
was recognized, and the custom grew up of allowing 
them to take out ordinary peddlers' licenses. We be- 
lieve that a more orderly way of handling this is 
by providing a junk peddler's license at $15 per 
annum or such other sum as Your Honorable Body 
shall find it proper to exact. 

As to other matters that have been changed in the 
ordinance, we believe that the new ordinance will be 
stronger than the one that existed heretofore. 

We forward two copies of the new draft herewith 
for your consideration. 

Yours truly,

First Assistant Corporation Counsel.

The following is said ordinance as passed:

ried over said street on a bridge and subway to be 
built and extended to conform to the bridge and 
subway now existing upon plans to be approved by 
the Commissioner of Public Works. But if and 
when said street is widened said Railway Company 
shall construct a new bridge and subway at said 
point one hundred (100) feet in width in accordance 
with specifications hereinafter set forth. Provided, 
however, that in connection with the reconstruction 
or renewal of the existing subway or the construc- 
tion of additional tracks over said street prior to the 
time the same is widened the Santa Fe Company, 
temporarily pending said widening, may construct 
and use only that portion of the permanent one hun- 
dred (100) feet wide subway which would be over 
said existing street, supporting same outside of the 
street lines by existing abutments and such other 
suitable supports as shall be approved by the Com- 
missioner of Public Works." 

Amend Subsection (g) of Section 2 appearing on 
page 1042 of said Council Proceedings by inserting 
immediately after the first paragraph thereof a new 
paragraph, as follows : 

"Provided, however, that in each of said streets 
(except Fuller street, Robinson street and Salt 
street), curbs through subways for additional and 
existing tracks may be realigned so as to conform to 
curbs on either side of said subways, and a line of 
columns may be placed in sidewalk spaces immedi- 
ately inside curb lines to support the bridges; pro- 



vided, further, however, that the roadway in Loomis 
street shall be not less than forty (40) feet in width. 
In Fuller street a line of columns may be placed in 
the center of the roadway to support the bridge." 

Amend the first paragraph of Subsection (h) of 
Section 2 by striking out the first sentence thereof 
beginning at the sixth line from the bottom, first 
column, page 1042 of said Council Proceedings, and 
substituting therefor the following: 

"The additional tracks at Throop street shall be 
carried across said street by means of a bridge and 
subway to be built and extended conforming to the

subway for additional and existing tracks may be 
realigned to conform to curbs on either side thereof, 
and a line of columns may be placed in each side- 
walk space to support the bridge under existing and 
additional tracks. Provided, however, that the road- 
way shall be not less than forty (40) feet in width." 

Strike out the last two paragraphs of Section 19 
appearing in the second column on page 1052 of said 
Proceedings and substitute therefor the following: 
"Also shall dedicate and open up for public use 
for the extension West 38th street, subject to the

means of a bridge and subway as hereinafter pro- 
vided a strip of land one hundred and eight (108) 
feet in width, being fifty (50) feet wide on the north

tance of one hundred twenty and thirty-seven one- 
hundredths (120.37) feet to a point; thence south- 
westerly on a six (6) degree curve tangent to said 
center line, having a radius of nine hundred fifty- 
five and thirty-seven one-hundredths (955.37) feet, 
for a distance of three hundred sixty-one and nine- 
ty-four one-hundredths (361.94) feet to a point

dition that the City shall pass an ordinance relin- 
quishing its right of easement in and to so much of 
the property described in the second paragraph of 
Subsection (e) of Section 20 of this ordinance, as 
shall lie east of said east line of new Blackwell 
street, produced north, and shall be effective only 
upon the passage by the City of such an ordinance." 

Amend Subsection (e) of Section 20 by inserting 
after the words "said new Blackwell street" in the 
twenty-third line, first column, page 1054 of said 
Council Proceedings the words, "and Archer avenue". 



In tlie Matter of the Distribution of Expenditures from 
the Vehicle Tax Fund. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with an ordinance transmit- 
ted therewith, referred to ttie Committee on Finance: 

Department op Public Works,"] 
Bureau of Streets, I 
Chicago, October 27, 1925.J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I herewith submit an amendment to 
Section 4071 of The Chicago Municipal Code of 1922, 
prepared at my request by the Corporal Counsel. 

This amendment will eliminate that part of Sec- 
tion 4071 which reads: 

"The city collector shall keep a separate ac- 
count by wards showing the amount of revenue 
obtained from each ward in which any vehicle not 
drawn by animal power is kept when not in use, 
and in which any animal or animals are kept 
drawing any wagon or vehicle for which a license 
is procured under the provision of this article. 

"Fifteen per cent of the total revenues thus 
obtained shall be set aside, to be expended in the 
discretion of the commissioner of public works 
and under his direction, for the repair of such 
streets upon which there is an unusually heavy 
amount of traffic. 

"So much of the remaining eighty-five per cent 
of the revenues obtained from each ward, as, in 
the discretion of the commissioner of public 
works, may be needed for immediate use, shall 
be expended under the direction of said commis- 
sioner for the repair of streets and alleys in such 
ward, and the balance thereof shall remain to the 
credit of such ward account to be used as occasion 
requires." 

This amendment is requested as the provisions 
thereof have not been complied with by the City 
Collector anfl by this department. If this ordinance 
was complied with it would mean a few of the 
wards would receive more than their share of the 
vehicle tax collections, especially the twenty-seventh 
and forly-sccond wards which are directly across 
the river north and west from the loop and wherein 
are located largo garages housing numerous trucks 
employed by the mercantile and other business 
houses of the City. Under the terms of the present 
ordinance the tax paid by these trucks could not be 
spent in any other ward although these trucks may 
bo using the streets of the twenty-seventh and forty- 
second wards very little. This ordinance as it now 
stands contains impractical provisions and as it is 
my wish to comply with all the ordinances, I have

able consideration thereof by your honorable body.

In the Matter of the Transfer of Pupils from the Frank

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Schools, 
Fire and Civil Service: 

Board of Education,] 
Chicago, October 26, 1925.j 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the Aldermen of 
the City of Chicago in City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen — -As this is the first meeting of the 
City Council since its summer adjournment, I de- 
sire to take this opportunity of acknowledging re- 
ceipt of the resolution adopted by your honorable 
body on Wednesday, July 22, 1925. 

In reply to your petition, I beg to advise you that 
the following conditions made necessary a redis- 
tricting of the boundaries of the Frank Reilly and 
the John B. Murphy Schools : 

The Reilly School has 1,056 seats. In June, the 
membership was 1,329, an excess of 273 pupils. 

The Murphy School has 1,104 seats. In June, the 
membership was 648, leaving an excess of 456 seats. 

The greatest distance to be traveled by those 
transferred is five blocks. A request for police 
assistance at the intersection named has been made 
by the Superintendent of Schools. 

The Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Miss 
Elizabeth W. Murphy, advises that upon completion 
of the Scammon School, located at Keeler and 
Henderson avenues, the large territory between 
Kenton and Crawford, Wellington and Belmont ave- 
nues will be transferred from the Reilly district. 
When this takes place, a return of this portion 
named in the petition to the Reilly School could be 
considered as furnishing adequate seating accom- 
modations. 

I'o make this change at the present time would 
result in once more putting the Reilly School on a 
double school plan, and thus leaving vacant seats 
in the Murphy School. 

It will be seen from the above report of existing 
conditions that the action taken was for the best 
interests of the children attending the Reilly School. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward B. Ellicott, 

President.

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 



seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box, five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three and 
one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) de- 
grees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and the 
penetration of the residue thus obtained shall be not 
less than one-half ( % ) of the penetration before such 
heating, said penetration being determined as herein 
prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall have a 
ductility of not less than sixty (60) centimeters at 
five (5) millimeters penetration determined as here- 
in prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The fiux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters 
in diameter and three and one-half (3%) centi- 
meters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost 
over three (3) per cent by weight. The flux shall 
have a penetration of not less than thirty-flve (35) 
millimeters, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle weighted with fifty (50) grams acting for 
one (1) second, the material being tested at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said fiux, if fiux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a pene- 
tration, determined as herein prescribed, of not less 
than two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth 
and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than thret

one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box, five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three and 
one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty- five (325) de- 
grees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and the 
penetration of the residue thus obtained shall be not 
less than one-half (%) of the penetration before such 
heating, said penetration being determined as herein 
prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall have a 
ductility of not less than sixty (60) centimeters at 
five (5) millimeters penetration determined as here- 
in prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters 
in diameter and three and one-half (3%) centi- 
meters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost 
over three (3) per cent by weight. The flux shall 
have a penetration of not less than thirty-five (35) 
millimeters, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle weighted with fifty (50) grams acting for 
one (1) second, the material being tested at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a pene- 
tration, determined as herein prescribed, of not less 
than two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth 



and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 
(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, 
of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone or other stone. The said mixture shall 
be spread on the said concrete foundation, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less than ten (lOO tons. The said binder 
course after ultimate compression shall have a thick- 
ness of two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall 
be parallel with and one and one-half (11/2) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be 
made by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, 
the said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately mixed 
with the said asphalt cement. The said mixture 
shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide eleven (11) per cent; said levigated stone 
fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which can pass an 
eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass a two hun- 
dred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) per cent; said 
sand which can pass a forty (40) mesh sieve and 
cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve thirty-six 
(36) per cent; said sand which can pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty (40) mesh sieve 
twelve (12) per cent; said sand which can pass a 
four (41 mesh sieve and cannot pass a ten (10) 
mesh sieve two (2) per cent. The said mixture shall 
be spread at a temperature of not less than two 
hundred sixty (260) degrees Fahrenheit to an even 
surface and to such a depth that after ultimate com- 
pression, it shall have a thickness of one and one- 
half (1%) inches. The wearing course, while still 
hot and plastic, shall be rolled with a self-propelled 
roller weighing not less than ten (10) tons. Natural 
hydraulic cement shall then be spread over the 
wearing course in such quantity that one (1) barrel 
of natural hydraulic cement shall cover one thous-

other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement or 
the finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined asphalt 
has a consistency not softer than seven (7) milli- 
meters penetration and not harder than two and 
one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the pene- 
tration being made with a No. 2 needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (QSVa) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box, five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three and 
one-half (SVs) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) de- 
grees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and the 
penetration of the residue thus obtained shall be not 
less than one-half (%) of the penetration before such 
heating, said penetration being determined as herein 
prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall have a 
ductility of not less than sixty (60) centimeters at 
five (5) millimeters penetration determined as here- 
in prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The 
flux shall have a specific gravity of not less than 
ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than 
one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water 
at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters 
in diameter and three and one-half (3%) centi- 
meters in depth and is held at a temperature of 
three hundred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit for five (5) hours, thorn it shall not have lost 
over three (3) per cent by weight. The flux shall 
have a penetration of not less than thirty-flve (35) 
millimeters, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle weighted with fifty (50) grams acting for 
one (1) second, the material being tested at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 



in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any two 
of said refined asphalts and said flux, if flux must be 
used, provided that the mixture of reflned asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the reflned 
asphalts; and that the said asphalt cement shall 
contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by weight 
of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said asphalt 
cement shall be made by mixing and heating the 
said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said flux 
in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred flfty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred flfty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical 
means until the said mixture has become homo- 
geneous. The said asphalt cement shall have a pene- 
tration, determined as herein prescribed, of not less 
than two and one-half (2 ¥2 ") millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered tin 
box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter 
and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth 
and is held at a temperature of three hundred 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) 
hours, then it shall have lost not more than three 
(3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, 
of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said limestone, 
or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone or other stone. The said mixture shall 
be spread on the said concrete foundation, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled 
to an even surface with a self-propelled roller 
weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder 
course after ultimate compression shall have a 
thickness of two (2) inches, and the upper surface 
shall be parallel with and one and one-half (1%) 
inches below the upper surface of the finished pave- 
ment.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



1429 



The following is the communication recommended 
for publication in the foregoing report. 

October 28, 1925. 

To the Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light of 
the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

The Corporation Counsel and Special Counsel for 
the City of Chicago (with whom counsel for the 
Peoples Gas Light and Coke Company join) report 
to the Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric Light 
concerning the agreed case between the Peoples Gas 
Light and Coke Company and the City of Chicago as 
follows : 

■ 1. After holding numerous and extended confer- 
ences between counsel, an agreement has been 
reached upon the questions of law at issue be- 
tween the company and the city, and upon the 
method of procedure and upon the material to be 
incorporated in the agreed case. 

2. The documents constituting the record of the 
agreed case have been re-arranged and divided 
into two parts : Part I being the record of Cir- 
cuit Court Case No. 307,743. (the case in which 
the city has been trying to force the company to 
refund alleged excessive charges made under au- 
thority of an order of the court) ; and Part II con- 
taining documents from other proceedings and 
certain evidentiary matter which the company 
desires to have considered in the agreed case, but 
which the city objects to as irrelevant and incom- 
petent. 

3. The revision of the agreed case has taken a 
great deal of time but has been carried out with 
a genuine effort on both sides to find a manner of 
presenting the issues that would protect the in- 
terests of both parties and so far as possible in- 
sure a determination of the vital issues in the 
pending litigation. 

4. Counsel believe they will be able to present 
an agreed case to be finally passed upon by the 
Supreme Court wherein the court will determine 
and decide— 

a. Whether gas consumers have the legal 
right to recover the difference between the ordi- 
nance rates of 1911 and the rate of 80c charged 
by the company during the period involved, in 
the event the company shall not be able to 
prove on an issue of fact that such ordinance 
rates were unjust and unreasonable; or 

b. Whether gas consumers have no legal right 
to recover such difference even if the ordinance 
rates were in fact just and reasonable. 

5. Counsel are now able to report to the Com- 
mittee such substantial agreement upon the pro- 
cedure in and contents of the agreed case that 
they are sure that such a case can be submitted 
to Judge Torrison on November 2, 1925, the date 
upon which the case is now set for trial. 

Francis X. Busch, 
Corporation Counsel. 
Daniel R. Rubling, 
Special Counsel for City of Chicago in Gas Matters.

Counsel for the Peoples Gas Light and Coke Com- 
pany.

City of Chicago after all delinquent tax items have 
been sold and all the tax records completely bal- 
anced; and 

Whereas, This percentage of taxes turned over to 
the City at this time represents the largest percent- 
age of tax returns turned over to the City of Chi- 
cago at this time of the year; and 

Whereas, The County Treasurer of Cook County 
has advised the City that he has been enabled to 
turn over this large precentage at this time be- 
cause of the installation of cash register auditing 
machines in his office, which machines were con- 
structed and designed under his personal super- 
vision; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the members of the City Council 
hereby commend the County Treasurer for his ex- 
pediency in turning over the taxes due the City, 
as well as commending him for the large percent- 
age of taxes turned over to the City at this time,

to the large amount of taxes turned over and the 
expediency in turning over the same.
